Three big MS launches today

7 Nov

SQL Server 2005, Visual Studio 2005 and BizTalk Server 2006 all launch today. Damn!

Yesterday, Robert Scoble asked the musical question, “Is (this) event one of Microsoft’s last big launches?”

“See, SQL Server hasn’t shipped in several years. Why not? Because they added the .NET Framework deep inside SQL Server. Now, these aren’t two small teams that met once over pizza and beer and decided to do this. No, these are two HUGE businesses. It’d be like if GM and Toyota got together and decided to do a new project together with each other’s technology.”

…over pizza and beer, ideally.
