SQL Server 2005 Everywhere Edition

Si parlava di questa nuova versione di SQL Server 2005 un po di tempo fa. A questa pagina sono presenti un po’ di interessanti dettagli: http://www.microsoft.com/sql/ctp_sqleverywhere.mspx . Qui è possibile scaricare il datasheet mentre qui la prima CTP.

E’ interessante la tabella comparativa che riporto in basso:

Per un momento m’è frullata in mente la malsana idea di aggiornare le demo che farò all’evento .netSide di Venerdì. Per fortuna, come si legge su questo blog,

“Note that this CTP download only contains the runtime bits for developing desktop applications – Mobile support will come with the RTM”

Mi sarebbe costata qualche altra notte insonne Stick out tongue [:P]
