Microsoft's Big Day

On Feb. 27, Microsoft is kicking off a three-headed launch event for Visual Studio 2008, SQL Server 2008 and Windows Server 2008. As ever, with these formal launch events, the actual date of the shindig has little bearing on the state of the software itself. Visual Studio 2008 went final back in November, while SQL Server 2008 won't ship until the second quarter of this year.

What we want to know is: What are your thoughts on the new versions of these landmark Microsoft products? Have you been working with the 2008 versions of Visual Studio, SQL Server or Windows Server? If so, we want to hear from you.

Write me at [email protected], and your input could appear in an upcoming issue of Redmond Developer News magazine.
