Databases on Linux

I’ve only ever used SQL Server (and will still be using it every day and will continue trying to increase my knowledge) but I’d also like to play with some of the other DB offerings out there, particularly some of the NoSQL open source DBs. I’m going to try and get Couchbase running on a Ubuntu OS alongside my Windows 8 OS and will be using the steps in the following site to install Ubuntu

If anyone reading reading this has any experience using Ubuntu and has any tips or useful linsk please feel free to add comments…

I’ll let you know how I get on…
