It has been a long time since SQL Server 2008 got Service Pack Update. Microsoft has finally released SQL Server 2008 service pack 4 and its feature pack. SQL Server 2008 SP4 contains fixes to issues reported as well as Hotfix solutions have provided since SQL Server 2008 Service Pack 2 up to and including Cumulative Update 13.
I have personally switched to SQL Server 2014 few months ago and I am happy with its performance and robust behavior. Many of the customer and clients are still using SQL Server 2012. However, if you are using SQL Server 2008, I suggest that you look at upgrading to the latest version of SQL Server or at least update your software with latest service pack.
