MS Vista Not Compatible With SQL Server

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.

That’s two of their own products not compatible. Zune and SQL2005. Another good reason to use a nicer operating system, like OpenBSD, Mac OSX or if you’re in the corporate world Solaris
