How to Keep Up With SQL Server ran as the editorial of the day on July 31st. Modest amount of comments, but in particular I made a note to come back to the topic of early adopters vs being stuck with a late/never adopting employee. Both are interesting scenarios.
Imagine though that SQL Server ends up being delivered as a subscription. Do you think businesses will “upgrade” more often if its just a matter of applying a service pack type change? Or will they freeze it at some point because they don’t want to do more testing and/or risk regressions (security or performance)?
