I don't know which one I'm looking forward to the most. Most likely SQL 2005 since the last version was before 2000 with SQL 2000. VS 2005 is very nice but I'm still a bit puzzled with all the name changes of the different suites. We've got MSDN subscriptions, action packs, and MS certified partner licenses I believe. Worst case scenario I can always use the Express versions for my quick hacks at home and use the company ones when I'm at work. I like that type of seperation anyway.
