Two Down, One to Go

Microsoft today announced the release to manufacturing of Windows Server 2008[1], which means that of the three products being "launched" at the end of the month are actually done. Only SQL Server 2008 remains.

Of course, this news is all over the Internet already. And people don’t read this blog for generic launch news. (I assume.) But I’m posting this news as an excuse to try out Windows Live Writer. Quite a few people have recommended this to me lately, and since I was setting up a new computer anyway, I figured I’d try it out.

And it seems to work very nicely. Maybe now I can blog on the plane without typing into a Word document and pasting it into a browser window at the hotel. Time will tell…


[1] Yes, and Windows Vista SP1 as well, but that’s less exciting, I think.

My name is Matthew Roche, and I am a Senior Program Manager with the SQL Server product group at Microsoft. I work on Master Data Services and Data Quality Services, and have previously worked on SQL Server Integration Services. Although I work for Microsoft and will be posting on technical topics, I want to stress that this is a personal blog, and any opinions posted here are mine and mine alone. I built my career around SQL Server and Microsoft technologies for well over a decade before I joined Microsoft as an employee, and I plan on using this blog to share my personal experience and opinions. They may well be shaped by my experience on the SQL Server team, but they’re still mine, and not that of Microsoft, disclaimer, disclaimer, etc., etc..
