Our SAP core systems are running Windows 2003/SQL 2005 x64, all VM's on esxi 5.1 hosts. I want to migrate as much for the OS as for SQL. Having the ability to upgrade memory and processors on VM's without rebooting is not possible on Windows 2003 OS. This feature comes in handy when extra horsepower is temporarily needed in special situations. MIgrating is a pain and I don't want to do it again soon. So I plan to migrate both OS and SQL to Windows 2012/SQL 2012. I would rather go a little more pain on this migration than have to do it again soon.

"Quite a few of the people I've talked to in the last couple years feel the same way."

It is the same thing here Steve. We stood up a dev/test version that three or four of us have used for Research and to see the new features but there is not a strong enough business driver for our type of processing to move us rapidly to 2012. Time will come, but is may not be too soon.

We're still trying to get our customers to move from 2000 & 2005 to 2008R2 so we're a long way from having to look at 2012. I'm betting we'll miss it completely and maybe go to 2015/6 or whatever the next version is.
