Trying out SQL Server 2005

SQL Server 2005 Express Edition comes with almost everything you need to do development work. The lack of a Profiler tool is going to have me purchasing the developer edition very soon, but download the free management tools from Microsoft's Download Site, and find everything else you'd hoped would carry over from SQL Server 2000 Enterprise Manager.

Also, check out Red Gate's SQLPrompt. It plugs into your Query Analyzer and offers object name and keyword completion a via familiar CTRL-Space-induced drop-down list. It's clumsy at first but helpful if you have too many objects in your database to remember all the names.
