    Unanswered: Different versions of MS SQL Server

    Hi all...
    I'm a MySQL user and I want to switch to MS SQL Server, I heared that there is more than one type of MS SQL Server and one or two can be downloaded for free. Can someone tell me the different types of MS SQL Server and where can I download those free versions?

    freebies...

    Google for MSDE download

    or

    SQL Server Express 2005 download

    or

    SQL Server 2005 CTP download

    pay attention to system requirements.

    Thank you Thrasymachus...
    I found the SQL Server Express 2005 but is there a Graphical Client for SQL Server that I can download?

    Don't think you can get one for free but I may be wrong on that. Enterprise Manager comes with the high end versions but I think you always have to pay for it.

    I do not reccomend deploying BETA software.

    Cool. When I was installing SQL Server on my PC in April I didn't see that.
