SQL Server 2008 is chockfull of cool new features, but here is a list of 5 features that I find very useful for day to day operations.
- Intellisense, finally!
- T-SQL Debugger, finally!
- The ability to run a query against multiple servers.
- Powershell is now fully integrated.
- You can now add a color via connection properties for a server to help distinguish production from test servers.
