With all the new features in SQL 2008, it is easy for me to call 29 pages an executive summary.
Kevin Kline, SQL Server MVP, has put together a top ten list that goes into relative detail on the following ten points:
- SQL Improvements
- Developer Improvements
- Reporting Services Improvements
- Data Types and Data Storage
- Resource Governor
- Auditing and Change Tracking
- Analysis Services Performance Improvements
- Multi-Server Management
Highly recommended read, even for those who have been using SQL 2008 for a while now.
