One thing that is prevalent is that SQL 2005 content is the norm. SQL 2000 content is pretty much gone which is understandable. The only content that is related to 2000 has to do with DTS to SSIS conversion. Even though SQL 2008 is now officially launched (we had the party), many folks are still on SQL 2000 and are deciding on whether to move up to SQL 2005 now or wait for SQL 2008.
