SQL Server 2008 R2 SP2 Comes Out

SQL Server 2008 R2 customers better get their downloading fingers ready as Service Pack 2 is now available. There is not much new to report here, and the service pack is mainly a monster roll of all the bug fixes and patches from the past. I guess if you are already up-to-date with all the fixes, you don't have to rush  this update -- but it sure can't hurt.

What is your approach to service packs? School us all by writing to dbarney@redmondmag.com.
