What is the latest Service Pack that Microsoft will support? I have servers that are SQL 2005 SP2, in case of an emergency will they support this?
What about SQL 2000?

I am trying to deploy through webmatrix but my system Proxy server configuration is not being used. I assume that webmatrix would detect the proxy server settings and use that for the msdeploy calls under the hood. Can anyone confirm this is a know issue?
New spatial data support in SQL Server 2008 opens the door to mapping and querying geometric and geographic data, allowing you to build exciting new applications.

SQL Server 2005 includes several important improvements to the Transact-SQL (T-SQL) language. One added feature is a new kind of trigger that fires when data definition language (DDL) statements run.

XML is becoming the ubiquitous data format on the Web, and XML support in SQL Server is evolving to meet the additional demand. Using XML, SOAP, HTTP, and SQL Server, you can now build powerful Web Services easily. To show just how simple it is with SQLXML 3.0, this article walks the reader through the process step by step, from setting up a virtual directory enabling data access via HTTP to executing queries and building Web Services. Finally, the author illustrates the creation of two Web Services clients-one with C# that works with the Microsoft .NET Framework and one with the SOAP Toolkit 2.0 for anyone still using earlier development tools.

Will SQL server support semantic standards such as RDF, OWL, SPARQL similarly to Oracle 11g? Thank you.
"Oracle Database 11g Semantic Technologies is an open, standards-based, scalable, secure, reliable and performant RDF management platform. Based on a graph data model, RDF data (triples) are persisted, indexed and queried, like other object-relational data
is there a way to build a report with a tablix and let the columns movable for the users?
from another post i figured out, that this feature is not supported in sql server 2008.
is it featured in 2008 R2 or in 2010? :)
For example, if an sdf file is on a network server, could two network clients running SQL Server Compact 4.0 access the file at the same time?
This was not possible using SQLCE 3.5. I'm wondering if it's been added to 4.0 (so that it brings back the one advantage of using an Access db.)
