View open connections in SQL 2008

I need to clear up some connections in a SQL 2008 db. In SQL 2000 I would go to MANAGEMENT > CURRENT ACTIVITY > PROCESS INFO, where I could see all the connections to a database and kill the ones that were offending me.

I don't see anything like that in SQL 2008. Is it gone?

well, the report runs a query in the background...but, if you just want the new report, you can do this:

right click the database in object explorer, go to reports, and then select a report.  there shoudl be several that mimic processes.  

another way to do it is to go to the management folder, and then select the Activity Monitor...that mimics the old functionality.
select * from sys.dm_exec_connections
for what a connection is running:

select * from sys.dm_exec_requests r
cross apply sys.dm_exec_sql_text(sql_handle)

These are both using TSQL. I'm not afraid of that, but my question pertains to the old PROCESS INFO window. Is it gone? Is there any way to view the current procdess in the interface instead of running a query?

That got me most of the way there. SQL 2005 has the Activity Monitor that you mentioned. In SQL 2008 you have to right click on the Server and you'll see the Activity Monitor
