    Who has best [LEGAL] prices for SQL Srvr DEV?

    Hello All,

    I am looking to purchase a LEGAL copy of either SQL Server 2005 Developer or 2008 Developer and I was wondering who had the best prices. Some of the searches I have tried have managed to narrow it down to some place on planet Earth.

    www.cdw.com has 2008 Dev for for $50.00. I am just hoping to find a better deal than that.

    Any suggestions?

    Pricegrabber.com is showing some folks selling SQL Server 2008 Developer for $44 and Programmer's Paradise has it for $40.00

    Thanks,

    Craig

    I am studying for some certification exams and Express lacks some functionality that Developer / Enterprise has, for example, Partitioning and Database Mirroring. For doing just development SQL Express is great.

    How about eval edition? You can use it free for 180 days.
