I’m in the SQL Server SIG lunch at the ESRI 2008 UC.
Ed Katibah (Spatial Program Manager at Microsoft) just announced that earlier this morning he received an email that SQL Server 2008 has officially gone RTM (Release to Manufacturing).
This is great. The last few months it’s been stated that SQL Server 2008 would hit the market Q3 of 2008. I guess this means they are officially on track!
