Having read Rob’s post about the release of SQL Server 2005 Express Edition sp2 (could they not have come up with a snappier name – think mySQL, for example!), I decided to go ahead and see if it would install and run on my Mac!
The install was uneventful and I documented it as a series of screenshots on Flickr.
Having installed SQL Server 2005 Express Edition on my Mac, I fired it up and created a database and a table using the SQL Server Management Studio Express (again, snappy name?) which ships with it. The process was very straightforward, as you would expect.
Well, now that I have that up and running, what good is it? Any suggestions for what I could use it for? Rob?
