Azure SQL Managed Instance Versions

Just a really quick FYI for the readers. If you are using Managed Instances in Azure (If not, why not?) and you connect vis SSMS (SQL Server Management Studio) and run the classic commands SELECT @@VERSION, what will you see?

It will being with: Microsoft SQL Azure (RTM) – 12.0.2000.8 

Notice that value above, starting with 12.xx ? It is very familiar to those versions when using the fully blown version of SQL server (on-prem or IaaS), makes me think SQL server 2014 era right? Well, its confusing because SQL Managed Instances is evergreen – this is NOT bound to 2014 so don’t worry.
