Today marks the end of life of SQL Server 2005, originally release in November of 2005, this product has finally come to its end of life point.
One of my favorite features that was introduced in SQL Server 2005 was Common Table Expressions. Another big item that was added to SQL Server 2005 was the SQL Server Management Studio.
Its hard to believe its been 11 years since SQL Server SQL Server 2005 released.
So for anyone still using SQL Server 2005, you may want to think about upgrading to a newer version, there are many new features, bug fixes and some major enhancements to the product in the last 11 years. If you need help with this, Stedman Solutions, LLC can help with the upgrade.
SQL Server 2005, Rest In Peace.
