Which Version of SQL To Use?

P: n/a
I want to use things such as (1) Start > Programs > SQL Server > SQL
Server Management Studio, and (2) Start > Programs > Microsoft SQL
Server 2005 menu, etc.

Per a book I have, I only can do : Start > All Programs > Microsoft
SQL Server 2005 > Configuration Tools > SQL Server Configuration
Manager
SQL Server Error and Usage Reporting
SQL Server Surface Area Configuration


But, should I get the the developer version, the enterprise version,
the express edition, the standard edition or the workgroup edition? Is
the developer version o'kay?

Thanks,
Christopher Lusardi

Hi,

SQL server developer edition comes with all the tools and is by far
the cheapest. Keep in mind it is only licensed for developing software.

There also is a new version of sql express out that comes with a ssis, full
text search, and reporting services.
