Brian, thanks. Good summary. Still need to know more:
What is BAV saying about Express Edition without Agent? What about the backup job for example? OSQL with Windows Scheduler???
Abour Reports: Developer Edition 2005 Beta contains BI Development Studio. Will it continue to contain it?
Personal Edition: did not hear about this one in 2005. The advantage of Personal Edition in 2000 is that it is licensed as a client. It is a counterpart of the Standard Edition for Development. We use it a lot. Do you think it will be there in 2005?
Report Server itself: currently in 2000 is free with Standard Edition. Do you think it still will be provided with Standard?
