I'm getting quotes for a project where I would like just the basics for the OS and DB. The project is in .net and MS SQL 2005 and this will be done on a development environment. What do I need in terms of OS with the proper license. Can I get Windows Server 2008, Web Edition or do I need Standard with 5 CALs? Is there an MS SQL 2005 developer edition which allows functionality but doesn't have a ton of licenses?
Yes you can get Microsoft "SQL Server 2005 Developer Edition"
This can be used for a development environment but not for Live systems, it costs around $100.
