Running SQL Server vNext on Ubuntu

Post by robinwilson16 » Fri Nov 18, 2016 1:05 am

It is now finally possible for anyone to run SQL Server vNext on Ubuntu and query it from SSH :dance:

There are no graphical tools available yet that run in Ubuntu but hopefully these will also come given time and of course you can connect to the server from a Windows instance.

Here it is running on Ubuntu 16.04:
