Vista and Office 2007 RTM
So far so good! I am impressed with the performance increase and happy to report an extra hour and a half of battery life! Had a few minor issues, but were all taken care of when I ran the setup as Administrator or turned on the capability mode. I am not sure that I like some of the new icons, the Microsoft Media Player one is completely different. I am used to finding applications by their icons, but I guess it's not that bad of a change.

SQL Everywhere is now SQL Server 2005 Compact Edition
Don't know how many of you are watching the Mobile SQL DB space, but I sure am still excited about SQL Mobile 2005 and it's seamless integration with SQL Server 2005.
