    2014 :-o

    I am way behind :(

  • We have been running 2008 R2 for several years and are looking to upgrade to 2012 this year. Is 2014 a big enough step up from 2012 that I should reconsider and go straight to 2014?

  • Every time I search for SQLServer solutions, google sends me to your site and I get the answer. Thanks again, you’ve been helping me for years.

  • The sample databases in the Dev Trng Kit do not work with the SQL Express version of 2014…you must have Ent edition.
