    I'm just now getting time to look at 2008…any major conflicts with a combined 2000/2005 laptop?

    I think VMs are being made available later, but I'm not sure if that is public, or for Connect only, or for individual groups within Connect.
    Anyway, I'm a firm believer in the install being a very important part of the process to test, especially since it has been completely overhauled for this CTP!

    Darn, I was hoping for a virtual machine to avoid the install.

    Got it, received the email from connect a little while ago. I am glad that I already installed VS 2008 now I 'only' have SQL Server 2008 and Thanksgiving preparations left
