Bugs were, are and will be. There’s no software without bugs. Even greatest software vendors can’t guarantee bug-free products, as quality costs skyrockets above some level.
Anyway, I’m not going to b*tch on software quality - the more important fact is that SQL Server 2012 is finally released. As it took me few hours to upgrade properly, I can’t give you many impressions yet, but it looks promising:
- SQL Server Data Tools (for VS2010)
- Data Quality Services (http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ff877917(v=SQL.110).aspx)
- MDS (Master Data Services) and Stream Insight 2.0 included in base package
- … and zillion of other features I don’t really care much :)
Any opinions? Comments? Anyone found anything particularly useful in new SQL Server 2012?
