The last several times I’ve spoken at user groups, I’ve asked for a show of hands to find out when people plan to put their first SQL Server 2008 instance in production. I ask because it helps me write better presentations – there’s no sense in me talking about something you don’t plan to use, or to give you a getting-started-101 presentation on something you’ve been using for months.
The results have been surprisingly low – usually less than 10-20% plan to do it in the next 30-60 days. I’m curious to see if my readership has the same plans, so with no further ado, my first poll is below. (This may not work for readers with RSS readers.)
Update: the poll has closed. Thanks!
