Even though Microsoft is launching SQL Server 2008, code-named "Katmai," in February 2008, the SQL Server 2008 code won't be released to manufacturing until Q2 2008.

Until its Worldwide Partner Conference this week, Microsoft officials had said to expect SQL Server 2008 to ship some time in 2008, after a number of Community Technology Preview releases (and few, if any, traditional betas). Now that due date is a little more clear.

The unified Windows Server 2008-SQL Server 2008-Visual Studio 2008 launch is slated for February 27, 2008, in Los Angeles.

  • WS 2k8/SQL Server 2k8/VS 2k8 Launch

    I wonder how much all three products will charge if I buy all 3, considering I go with:

    Windows Small Business Server 2008 Standard
    SQL Server 2008 Standard Edition
    Visual Studio 2008 Standard Edition

    ?

    I know it's too early to ask, but if it's over $2,000, then I won't buy all of them at once (reason: college).
