I need a SQL Server database for testing and practise purposes, because I will have an exam soon. I don't want to pay for a Windows Server license, what do you think about SQL Server on Linux? 🤔
@jsalvador SQL Server Express is free, and though limited, is plenty capablefor practice and testing purposes.
I would not recommend SQL Server on linux. But if it doesn't have to be Microsoft, postgres is lovely!
@lafe I'm huge fan of Postgres, but the certification and the exam is about SQL Server :(
@sirikon I asked for it, it's only database-related questions, so I don't think they care about OS.
@sirikon Actually there is a trial version with 180 days of license to test it, so I could use that. But also I wanted to try it on Linux :(
