SQL Server 2008 R2: Party in April, Launch in May

When is a launch event not really a launch event? When it's more of a launch pre-party. Microsoft is holding a SQL Server 2008 R2 "launch event" in Germany this month, but don't let the nomenclature fool you; the next version of SQL Server is still due to actually launch in May. The April event is just some sort of pre-celebration of the May unveiling. With that in mind, we're going to celebrate Wednesday's RCPU tonight with a couple of cocktails and some foul-smelling cheese. Cheers!
