Differences between SQL2000 Dev. Edition & SQL2005 Dev. Edition

P: n/a
Hello all,

Can anyone tell me or suggest links about differences of SQL Server
2000 Developer Edition & SQL Server 2005 Developer Edition?
Specifically, I need to know about the licencing policy.

So far I know that SQL Server 2005 Developer Edition is licenced for
develpoment (what else), test and demo use. Each licence entitles only
one developer to use the software on as many systems as necessary and
additional developers can use the software by parchasing additional
licences (some sentences borrowed by microsoft's presentation of the
product).
Does 2000 Edition has more functions than the latest one? In other
words, what the advantages and disadvantages of these 2 Versions?

Thanks in advance?

PS: Shoul I post this here?

No. SQL Server 2005 Dev Edition is feature equivalent to SQL Server
2005 Enterprise. Other than the licence the only difference I'm aware
of is that Dev works on the desktop Windows OS whereas Enterprise
doesn't

Whenever possible please post enough code to reproduce your problem.
Including CREATE TABLE and INSERT statements usually helps.
State what version of SQL Server you are using and specify the content
of any error messages.

Hello David,

thanks for replying, my last question was a bit thick I suppose "Does
2000 Edition has more functions than the latest one?", a newer version
is always better. What was the licence policy of SQL Server 2000 Dev.
Edition? Do you remember?

And a 2nd one, did microsoft stop selling SQL Server 2000 Editions?

PS: Please excuse my english.

Thanks in advance!
