In this way, is SQL Server 2017 stable?
Yes, SQL Server 2017 is stable. But don't take my word for it, go try it for yourself. SQL Server 2017 Developer edition is free. Install and see for yourself it is stable enough for your needs.
Additionally, is SQL Server still relevant? Absolutely, SQL Server is extremely popular. I can also tell you that there is a really large lack of talented folks in the DBA/SQL Dev job market right now, so its a boon for job seekers. Many of the skills you will pick will be transferable from platform to platform.
