Microsoft’s Free Database Server and More!

Microsoft now offers a free version of its SQL Server DBMS (DataBase Management System); called SQL Server 2008 Express.  The free database server is basically a stripped down version of SQL Server 2008, hence the ‘Express’ tag.  The database server, GUI management tools, and .NET programming objects can be downloaded for free using Microsoft’s Web Platform Installer 2.0 Beta.  Many other development tools, source code libraries, source code examples, IDE’s, and application servers can also be installed onto a Windows workstation using the Web Platform Installer.  Below is a link to download Microsoft’s Web Platform Installer 2.0 Beta.
