can comeone be kind enough to make it as easy as possible the difference between

sql server developer
sql server express
oracle

and how they apply. please?

SQL server express is cut down, don't think you can do DTS transfers amongst other things. Pretty sure you can with developer, but not positive.

Oracle is a different product, like comparing Word and OpenOffice writer thingy. They do the same, albeit slightly differently. There is also MySQL, which again is very similar. If you don't know what you need, go for developer from those 3.

Three of these products are free to anyone anyway and can be downloaded from Microsoft.

Visual Studio 2008 Express Edition
http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-gb/express/default.aspx

SQL Server Express
http://www.microsoft.com/express/sql/

Virtual PC 2007
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyId=04D26402-3199-48A3-AFA2-2DC0B40A73B6&displaylang=en

And in fact you can download a number of other Microsoft products for free from here (all legal and genuine, these are often cut down "express" versions)

good spot

I'm a student, got visual studio 2005 professional edition from here, as well as the server os's. Pretty sweet..
#8
Methinks I'll be downloading these this weekend. Already got VS but I think it's 2003 or something, and it never hurts to have a pile of free software :P Especially for final year :D (Next year, grr...)

H+R.

Also, there's free E-books for Visual Studio 08 and SQL Server 08 - Get it down ye!

For Kapows thought I'd say depending on what you are looking to do with the software depends which you would want to look at, if its for career etc especially for large scale data storage far more companies use Oracle and it is a much desirable package to have experience with in the BI (Business Intelligence) area, if you are looking at that sort of thing have a look at SAS as well. Good luck, you want any more info drop me a pm.

Ach pants, I work in software testing but I want to learn more about development so this would be ideal for me as it'll only be used at home. However I guess I wouldn't qualify for the really useful free s/w despite that I'm using it for educational purposes rather than business.

Meh.

Oh yeah, does the link not work for anyone else?

I will not vote this hot. This is not some new "deal" its a scheme that MS have been running for several months now.

Yes but no matter how much a company promotes something there are always people who dont know about good offers, so it never hurts to promote it again.

I graduated from uni 3 years ago, but my log in for the uni website still works, so was able to download the software from here :)
#14
Thought I'd let you all know that for those ofus who don't qualify for this offer, and don't know a student to do it for ue in exchange for some beer, you can run server 2008 as a trial for about 9 months free, you can also get a single machine license for about £20, which is a lot cheaper than vista. The other thing if people got an HP Server is if you install ESX then you can also run XP or Vista to remove any 64 bit issues with software.
#15
Exchanging software for beer is digital prositution. Poor defenseless student. You sir, are worse than Frietzl.

You should be ashamed.:x

SQL Server Express can be used with DTS. The biggest limitation seems to be the 4GB database size limit.

Both SQL Server Express and SQL Server Express Management Studio are free from the Microsoft web site.

I wonder if M$ will offer Windows 7 for free for students or a big discount...

Seems fair enough, what kind would you like, Double chocolate chip? Where should said cookie be sent? :thumbsup:

I would have thought yes through the MSDN Academic Alliance, you can already get most MS OS's through it including the Windows 7 beta so I see no reason why it won't when its released be added at some stage.

Hot and yes we,ve all seen it before but some people may not have
