Well, this is old news by now, but I’ve noticed that there still hasn’t been an official announcement from MS other than the keynote at TechEd South Africa. At any rate, SQL Server 2008 has been released!! It can be found on subscriber downloads at MSDN or Technet, or, if you want an evaluation copy, it can be found here: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/evalcenter/bb851664.aspx
Congrats to the SQL Team for getting it out the door. There’s a lot to look forward to in this release of SQL Server!!
