SQL Service Packs Scheduled

SQL Server 2005 and 2008 will get some new features late this year when service packs for both ship.

SQL Server 2005 is winding down, so this will probably be the last pack for this package. Unfortunately, Microsoft didn't release any details on either of the packs.

Do you use SQL Server? If so, why choose that over Oracle, DB2 or any other enterprise database? Send your thoughts to dbarney@redmondmag.com.
