I'm not sure about the awareness of our "Virtual Labs", (I know that I hadn't heard about them before today), but I thought I would mention them as they are really useful for getting first hand experience of SQL Server 2005 and its features without having to install anything to your machine.

As a Microsoft Consultant I'm amazed that the Virtual Labs are "hidden" -- I've listed them all here for my clients.
I agree, we really should make more of an effort with giving the labs more exposure to customers and partners as they are such a great resource.
What are your experiences of the Virtual Labs?
