Can anyone shed light on the inforamtion provided by microsoft at: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms143393.aspx  for upgrade paths for SQL Server 2005 (32-Bit) Developer Edition? I'd like to upgrade it to the 2008 Developer version, and I'm running standard (not 64 bit) windows environments.

Is this a feature that is going to be added, or are they saying there is not upgrade path for 2005 developer?

Yes it sounds like the upgrade is for 64 bit, but, that is not my understanding though.

The developer edition in the same as the Enterprise Edition, and there is support for Enterprise on 32 bit.

and the footnote, reads "SQL Server 2008 on the 32-bit subsystem" meaning it is 32-bit....

Also, MSDN subscribers now have a small bonus - Development Edition + Database Edition Merge for VSTS.

Would imagine with the power of Express, that one day, we might see a different angle on developer editions... But for now, you are safe.
