Techie? NO Surprise SQL server 2008 due out in early 08

For you techies here’s a SQL Query to enjoy:

SELECT *

FROM USERS

WHERE CLUE>0

DBMS Result:

0 ROWS RETURNED

Ok all you techies out there, it should come as no surprise but Microsoft will be releasing SQL Server 2008 shortly.  Also by the way SQL Server 2000 does NOT support the Vista product, which SQL 2005 supports.  Considering that the Microsoft is still testing using SQL server 2000, don’t be surprised that will change soon too!  Consider the fact this product is not state of the art and is already over seven years old.   Here is a link for support timeline for SQL server 2000 and other products. http://support.microsoft.com/lifecycle/?LN=en-us&p1=2852&x=6&y=10 

Considering that OS Vista is being thrust upon the public with the onslaught of Vista only ready machines being sold, the public definitely in my opinion, will be behind the curve.  Vista SP1 is scheduled to come out in February 2008.
From what I have been able to gather, I would say SQL Server 2008 will have a April 2008 release.  I have attached copy from a news release by MS about the pending release of:

"Microsoft SQL Server 2008
SQL Server 2008 (formerly known as SQL Server code name "Katmai"),
The next release of Microsoft SQL Server, provides a comprehensive data platform that is secure, reliable, manageable, and scalable for your mission-critical applications. SQL Server 2008 enables developers to create new applications that can store and consume any type of data on any device, and enables all your users to make informed decisions with relevant insights. Microsoft is releasing a Community Technology Preview (CTP) version of SQL Server 2008 in conjunction with the Microsoft Tech-Ed 2007 conference.  https://connect.microsoft.com/SQLServer/content/content.aspx?ContentID=5395 "

This exchange is from the Microsoft TechNet Discussion:

Feb 27 is a marketing event, not ship date (at least not for SQL Server).

^^^^^^^^^^So it looks as though SQL 2000 is a approaching antique status^^^^^^^^^

~~~~~~~~~~Wouldn’t you want to be more competitive in the marketplace?~~~~~~~~~

^^^^^Doesn’t it make sense that tech schools should be teaching current material?^^^^^

Again for the techies:
