SQL Server 2005 SP3

April 21, 2008 at 11:52 am (SQL Server 2005) (, , , )

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, Microsoft Connect really works. There has been a campaign going throughout the SQL Server community to get a new service pack out for SQL Server 2005. Microsoft had, at the very least, suggested that they were not going to release any more service packs for 2005. That’s all changed now. I saw the announcement in Kalen Delaney’s editorial from SQL Sever Magazine UPDATE. That’s worth a read all on it’s own.

And consider this, 704 votes made this happen. That’s 704 people who took the time & trouble to click their mouse a few times. If that’s all it takes to influence Redmond, then you should all be over there using Connect as often as possible to get the fixes, changes or improvements into the SQL Server product that you want or need most.

    704? That’s incredible. Glad I took time to be one of them ;0)

    Yeah, such a small number. I went back & voted on a couple of minor issues that I was interested, just to see if they would show up in a future release.
