Hi,

I wonder if there s a reason to absolutely go for sql server instead os sql express when you have a small environment. Express asks for less resources and  goes upto 10 gb, wright?

Thx for your feedback.

resources should be similar, anyway I`d suggest you to look for ms sql 2012, which was already released (i`m going to beta exam in a while) ;-)
