Now I am not getting as much excited to download but just out of curiosity can you have 3 instances of SQL Server on the same machine? I think most of us already have SQL 2000 and SQL 2005. Now can can we add 2008 to the group

Given that it's still an early CTP release, I'm using a VPC to test it with. Nothing like h0rking up a perfectly functional workstation with beta software... :)

The "Change Data Capture" stuff sure is neat though! Haven't had a chance to fool around with some of the T-SQL enhancements, but looking forward to them along with the Policy Management aspect that Katmai brings (that might just be the most interesting piece yet).
