Definitely choose 2008. Not sure Vista stinks, but it isn't much better than XP in many ways, and worse in some, notably using resources.

I edited my post to sound less grouchy but I still don't think Vista and Office 2007 have any advantages over their predecessors for developers and DBA's, unless they're writing features targeted for those new versions.

I don't think 2005 has any advantages over 2008. 2008 is essentially a 2nd version of 2005 with features bolted on. Now I wouldn't necessarily use some of those new features without extensive testing, but the core parts of 2005 are essentially those of 2005.

I'm glad the "core parts of 2005 are those of 2005", I'd be disappointed if they were the core parts of 2000:D

You'd think I'd be used to typing 2008 by now.

The core of 2008 is the same as 2005.

Sorry to those who grump about goverment IT but here we probably rate an 8 of 10. We are an established state agency that IT people from other agencies woudl like to come work for. It has taken a few decades to get to this point but the work has been paying off.

Whether an IT department is Great or Lousy; it's determined by the aggregation of those of us in the department.
