SQL Server 2005 *IS* in my opinion the buggiest! Of course is a "massive" change from what 2000 offered

From what I've heard during 2 years of use from lots of people, this is the most stable release. That might be different in your environment, but the general impression from friends/co-workers/etc. that have upgraded is 2005 is better than 2000.

I don't see this release date shipping since they'll likely have events planned. If something isn't done soon, it will probably be pulled rather than slip this date.

Recognize that Feb 27, 2008 is the "Launch Date".  The release date is not the same as the "Launch Date".  That only means there will be big events, satellite broadcasts, and boxes in stores on that date. 

Visual Studio will still be "released" by end of the year: http://blogs.msdn.com/dseven/archive/2007/07/10/windows-server-2008-visual-studio-2008-and-microsoft-sql-server-2008-joint-launch-announced.aspx

SQL Server 2008 is still planned for a "2Q 2008" release (that would be after the "Launch date"): http://blogs.msdn.com/dtjones/archive/2007/07/10/sql-server-2008-to-launch-on-2-27-2008.aspx

I'm not sure how much changes and features that they will incorporate in SQL2K8. But i would think they will just add up on top of SQL 2K5..  If you dont upgrade or at least learn sql2k5  before sql2k8, you may be left behind.  Remember there are tons of changes in 2k5 from sql2k.  I doubt it if sql2k8 will be totally different again.

I've spent the last 3 months studying for the MCTS SQL 2005 certification. I still plan on taking the exam, but I'm concerned that the release of SQL2k8 is going to depreciate the value of my MCTS SQL 2005 certification.

Probably late Q2 but that is just my guess.
