Ca atunci cand SQL Server 2008 va fi disponibil, sa fii disponibil si tu (din punct de vedere tehnic, ma refer) poti incepe cu un test drive de SQL 2008! Vezi exact cum prinde viteza maxima, cum sta in curbe (situatii crite, adica), tot ce trebuie.

Test drive-ul il faci aici.

Mai mult: daca iti aloci cate 90 de minute pentru fiecare laborator virtual de mai jos, poti invata cum sa obtii de la masina (cea pe care va fi instalat SQL Server 2008) maximum de performanta!
