SQL Server 2008 ReleaseWatch!

With the imminent release of SQL Server 2008, I think we should set up a SQL Server 2008 ReleaseWatch.

Who's in?

We are waiting for SQL 2008 and will jump from SQL 2000 to SQL 2008. My trail version of SQL 2005 will be expired in 20 days. Can we get SQL 2008 in one month?

Hi Bill,

Hi Andy,

  In the link for SSMS T-SQL Debugger ScreenCast, the version number of SQL Server 2008 is 10.0 RTM. Does it mean SQL 2008 will be released very soon?

No Bill, builds prior to RTM (e.g. the build I am running, which is definitely not RTM) already have RTM in the status bar of SSMS.  It is not true, but they had to change that text out sometime.
