SQL Server 2008 new RTM date

January 30th, 2008 Leave a comment Go to comments

It’s official. SQL Server 2008 RTM date slipped to Q3 CY2008. See details here. That means that with SQL Server 2000 mainstream support ending in April, SQL Server 2005 will be the only supported version for several months. I know that some SQL Server shops were planning so called ‘version-skip’ migration, i.e. go directly to SQL Server 2008 from 2000 (and SQL Server 2008 will support direct migration from SQL Server 2000). If you want to stay under Microsoft support that’s not an option anymore with the new RTM date.
