More new versions

No, I'm not just talking about SQL Server 2008, although I will be. I'm talking about all the other versions of things that are coming out...

I started playing a little more with "Longhorn" - the next version of Windows Server. There are a lot of changes here, from network load balancing to new security and CPU-throttling capabilties. It makes you wonder how much closer the DBA will have to work with the system administrators. With similar features in SQL Server (the Query Governor and new security enhancements come to mind) you could quickly end up duplicating features. It's important now more than every to learn the new things in more than just SQL Server.
