Thinking of Going to Vista, Be Careful!

If you currently run SQL Server of MSDE on your desktop, you need to really be careful before migrating to Windows Vista. It has been announced that Windows Vista will only support SQL Server 2005 SP2 (yet to be released) and above. SQL Server 2000 and 7.0 will no longer be support. Is this going to slow support of Windows Vista. I can't help but to think it might for many enterprises that run MSDE on their desktop.

Slow? I am thinking its going to STOP Vista sales.

Gee, lets see:

a) dump my working SQL 2000 or MSDE apps for an OS change, which hasnt been proven out there yet?

b) stick with what I know works and dont make a change...

Hmmmmm. :-)
