Well with a great product release like SQL Server 2008 and many many features like Geospatial support, data visualisation with reporting services, DW optimisations and many other bells and whistles; one can be kept busy for a long long time.

And it only hit me how quickly time has flown when I read the following blog post that mentions that SQL Server 2008 RTM is set to hit end of mainstream support.

Please ensure you have plans to upgrade your SQL Server 2008 installs to SP1. Also it may be time to start considering SQL Server 2008 R2 with its release early this year (2010).
