5 out of 5 eggsgood value

Pros: Some people seem to be confused about what this product is. It is the enterprise version of Sql Server (~$25,000) licensed for developers. For a very low price you can get a copy of the full featured version of Sql Server for use in a development environment or for use in learning all of the Sql Server features. For, its intended uses, it is a very good value.

Cons: It does cost something and it cannot be used legally for any kind of production function. Sql Server express is free. It provides most of the core functions of Sql Server. It can be used for anything within constraints that are not much of a limitation for low end environments. If Sql Server Express fits your needs, it is a better choice. For most, it is probably the right place to start.

2 out of 5 eggsSQL Express is probably better

Pros: Wasn't really impressed by the feature set. SQL Express is free and has most of the same capabilities

Cons: SQL Server 2008 databases can not be exported into a format SQL Server 2005. Kind of an important feature considering its a new product and people may be in the process of transitioning.

Other Thoughts: As a developer, I tend to work in multiple database versions for different clients and this one would force all my clients to upgrade to 2008, so its far from perfect.
