SQL Server 2008 - launch date announced

Sorry - I got one important word wrong when I posted previously that the release launch date had been announced for SQL Server 2008.

It turns out that Feb 27th 2008 is the launch date and not the release date. I should have known better, this is the same scheme that the mighty Microsoft marketing machine came up with for the 2005 launch. Oh well - it should be a good party anyway and with any luck the actually release date will be about the same time.

The current communication coming from Microsoft is that the release date is "Q3 2008". So at the moment it could be anytime between July to September 2008. With the TechEd events starting around the World in June I would be hoping that they use them to announce a firm date, but that is just speculation on my part.
