    So SS2005 gets a bit closer to functionality (and, in this particular case, syntax) Oracle has been using for some time...

    The functionality (and, in this particular case, syntax) are part of the ANSI SQL99 standard.

    I like standards - in terms of if you are going to implement some functionality and there is some standard syntax for it, you should use it - but if it is proprietary functionality then you have to go out on your own with syntax anyway..

    Good to see these new functions - they and the Top N ability will make many filtering tasks infinitely more straight forward!  Nice article and explanation too
