SQL 2000 vs SQL 2008 differences

Last Modified: 2012-06-21
We're going to upgrade our ASP.NET web site's database from SQL Server 2000 to 2008. We are not doing any replication, DTS reporting or analysis, just Transact SQL. I know that one issue from 2000 to 2005 was that the order of records in results was undetermined if no ORDER BY clause was used.

I'm looking for similar things to check our application for.

Are there any articles out there that address this directly from 2000 to 2008 or do I need to compare 2000 to 2005 and then 2005 to 2008?

Are there any articles out there that do NOT reference 2008 R2? We're not upgrading to SQL 2010.

Thanks in advance.
