Currently I use MS SQL server at my Gentoo with docker.
But it will be worth to remove excessive layer, like it done at Ubuntu / RedHat

I searched portage overlays / this forum for it and find nothing.
Are there any plans to support MS SQL server for linux at Gentoo directly?

WBR,
PAV

I am also interested in using MS SQL on Gentoo.

An ebuild would be nice!

About as likely as it is for Oracle or IBM DB packages, which is currently nil. The rest of us already use postgres.

If someone who actually uses the software writes and maintains the ebuild, maybe.

Patches welcome, otherwise you only get what you pay for.

In some way or form, I do respect that
EDIT...stance.
I use that MS-SQL alot in my work. "We" migreated from oracle - mostly because of their predatory principles of pricing things.
So, MS-SQL, wow - I am so surprised! No matter what, I can se the implication of using MS-SQL. Nicely spotted.
What's in fantasy world is OK? Sometimes it's really the best for me! I cannot want it more. This time - reality hit hard - But I like the little guy.
So I am bulnerable.
