Comparison between different editions of MS SQL

Often I am asked between the different editions of Microsoft SQL Server (2005 and 2008). Whilst the MS.SQL Express edition is free, do bear in mind that there are limitations to the express edition – notably the 4Gb database size limitation. The express edition as described by Microsoft themselves is a lighweight version of the standard version. There are other limitations which may not be so noticable now but worth considering once your database goes into the production stage.
