Ok, it’s been a really long time since I posted, well over a month. Work commitments have taken a bit more of my time this month. If you missed it this may have been the biggest month for SQL Server since RTM release.
April saw the release of Service Pack 1 for SQL Server 2005 and Microsoft making another tool acquisition in the BI space.
SP1 was the most interactive service pack I have seen. The CTP access allowed SQL users to work with the beta product and provide feed back to MS on any possible issues. Creating what should be a solid service pack.
If you have not downloaded SP1 yet check out: Download SQL Server 2005 SP1
