A poem I wrote (that's in the Feast of Tears book, if anyone ever reads that), shared here as part of a discussion I'm having on Twitter right now.

I have been VERY happy with SQL 2008. It is, in my opinion, the best SQL since 7.0 eliminated the bad taste in our mouths that was 6.5. SQL 2012 introduced a ton of new things that look just as amazing... I'm still trying to keep up with all the changes (and getting ready to test for certification on it!).
