This is an article by Fortune’s Owen Thomas on Vista not being compatible with SQL Server. An excerpt:
‘But now Microsoft has a problem. Vista, its long-awaited update to the Windows operating system, can’t run the current version of SQL Server. The company is working on a SQL upgrade that is compatible with Vista – called SQL Server 2005 Express Service Pack 2 – but it’s in beta and can be licensed only for testing purposes. Microsoft hasn’t set a release date for the new SQL program.’
Microsoft is making the world worse with Vista.
