"SQL Server Management Studio (SSMS) is a victory of ingenuity and energy..."

Thanks for a good laugh. I always thought of SSMS as a mobile home attached to the space shuttle.

Yes, it is what we Irish call a 'Donkey's breakfast'. The individual ingredients are good, but all stirred up together into a strange mash from which it is hard to pick out the raisins.

Ummm.... careful... those aren't raisins. ;-)

RBAR is pronounced ree-bar and is a Modenism for Row-By-Agonizing-Row.
First step towards the paradigm shift of writing Set Based code:
Stop thinking about what you want to do to a row... think, instead, of what you want to do to a column.
Although they tell us that they want it real bad, our primary goal is to ensure that we dont actually give it to them that way.
Although change is inevitable, change for the better is not.
Just because you can do something in PowerShell, doesnt mean you should. Wink

There's a reason why I like also having the old Query Analyzer from SS2000 still around, I just wonder how much longer it will work with future versions of SQL Server.

As much as I didn't like the MMC move from Enterprise Manager, I think SSMS was a mistake. It's got too much built in, with hidden non-modal windows getting lost, and a pain to navigate through things.

I'd rather have us move back to separate tools for separate functions.

The window popups are what really bugs me. Plus, when you maximize one window, then close it, SSMS doesn't remember that it was maximized when it was open 1 minute earlier.

I've thought about checking out Toad, but I obviously haven't thought too much about it as I haven't done it yet.

Two things frustrate me about SSMS:
1. Intellisense gets in the way to the point I've got it turned off.
2. When working with a dual-monitor system, with SSMS on the secondary monitor, all dialog boxes pop up in the center of the main monitor instead of the current one.

And a few irritations:
1. Many dialog boxes don't display the proper cursor.
2. The default action for a linked server is to open the properties dialog... but double-clicking it just expands that node in the treeview.

'M' is a name already taken for a language. M is the name for the language once called MUMPS.
