SQL Server 2005 Review

Here is an interesting review of SQL Server 2005 by EWeek.
Seems to be quite objective.

One of the more interesting bits from an Oracle perspective:

   However, by making management more complex, Microsoft has discarded the
   one significant advantage it had over Oracle Database 10g and IBM's
DB2—ease
   of administration. This makes DB2 and Oracle Database 10g look all the
more
   attractive for their broader choice of development frameworks, management

   interfaces, and server hardware and operating systems.

Some of us might find that somewhat ironic.
