SQL Everywhere Is Nowhere

The name SQL Everywhere is dead. Fortunately, the product isn't. SQL Server Mobile Edition was supposed to get the Everywhere moniker. Now it'll just be called SQL Server Compact Edition.

Apparently, the Everywhere name was too close to Sybase's SQL Anywhere. Heck, Microsoft got its SQL Server code from Sybase -- why shouldn't it snag the name, as well?

Look for the tool to ship later this year.
