Hello World,

I have just recieved SQL Server Express 2008. I was thinking about putting it on my laptop on another partition, just to test it out for a little while. Has anyone used SQL Server Express and will it work on a laptop? Is it wise to put it on a laptop?

It will install and run fine on your laptop, might want to make sure you have the Management Studio tools with it as well.

I'm assuming that you install the management tools on top of SQL

Why are you installing SQL Express? Some development project or just curiosity? Note some products install SQL EXpress partitions already - Microsoft MovieMaker for example.

I want to learn SQL because there are companies that use it in their network. Plus the two school that I went to, they talked about SQL a lot but I have never seen it deployed. The next one is Oracle.

Oracle is a nightmare.  Trust me.  I learnt it at uni and then vowed never to use it (we use SQL Server solely here).

Fun trivia: Geekzone runs off SQL Server :)

If you're wanting to learn SQL Server then try the latest version - which is now SQL Server 2008 R2. Since the Express Edition is free it's an easy choice. You probably won't notice much difference (depending on what you do), but at least you'll be up with the play then on the most current technology.
