    SQL Express bits are now live (only English) on the web for any customer to be able to freely download and use it and experience it (not supported in production environments). Some useful links:

    SQL Express Main page -http://msdn.microsoft.com/express/sql/default.aspx
    Download Center Page -http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/...B6-BFD9-4AC8-B31D-DDBAD7D532A2&displaylang=en
    .Net framework 2.0 download center page -http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/...37-0FEE-4AA6-AA89-B6DCEFC0873B&displaylang=en


    1 This is part of an overall Express launch along with Whidbey, seehttp://lab.msdn.microsoft.com/express/

    2 Japanese version of Express will be available when Yukon Beta2 is released. Only English Tech Preview bits have been released.

    3 .Net framework 2.0 is a pre-req for Express. It is not installed as part of Express setup unlike the Developer edition of Yukon.

    "amateur programmers"? I never thought use of a stripped down feature set and RAD would brand one as an amateur.

    On my local XP machine, the installation was smooth, but all hell broke loose when I tried connecting to the instance with either Windows or SQL Authentication. It also changed some of the client connectivity settings for the SQl server 2000 instance I was running. I am yet to fully give this thing a workout.

    If I try to install only tools in my notebook with full SQL 2000, I'll lose something?

    I think installing only the tools will not affect anything but you will not be able to do much without the database engine itself. I installed the tools but I cant see any of them in the regular shortcuts location under the Programs->SQL Server 2005 path. I guess I might to look deeper into the installation folder.

    FYI: Be ware if installing VS 2005 on a computer with VS.NET 2003. Your projects will default to use ASP.NET 2.0 Beta instead of ASP.NET 1.1.

    There should be a way of indicating which version of the framework a project or application should use. Or am I daydreaming?

    Yes there is but the default will change from ASP1.1 to ASP 2.0.
