Here is the issue though.
Every Microsoft meeting I go starting with SQL Server 2005 introduction in November, 2005 in Mandalay Bay, Microsoft execs say: Customer demanded faster ( than 5 years) release cycle and we will plan to comply.....
So who are these demanding customers? Actually I did not meet any so far....
Many (still) 2000 shops will just skip 2005 and go directly to 2008.
