    The theoritical data depends from situation to situation, on a public presentation it cannot be stressed or highlighted a specific scenario.
    In the presentation I have referred about how to find the deprecated & discontinued features between the versions and also the process to follow on upgrade practices.q

    We're in the process of upgrading for production. When we moved one of our recent apps to SQL 2008 in development, the only issues we had were with the DTS packages. And we have yet to completely resolve those, but we're working on it. For the most part, it was a smooth and painless migration. I will say that, we were careful during the app development (done in SQL 2000) since we knew we would be working with SQL 2008 for the long term and avoided any of the deprecated features.

    Thats a good thinking to have a vision that upgrade is planned well ahead [H][Y]. In terms of DTS packages issue I would say itis better to rewrite them in SSIS than continuting or migrating the existing ones.
