I cant obviously comment for this build but VS2008 has worked on the rest so far, otherwise I would have stayed with Vista just for that reason.
As for SQL Server I dont know, I've been using my MySQL that I use for my Apache.

Cant honestly remember about VS SP1 but I had loads of extras going on so probably.

Thanks for the information. What version of IIS does Windows 7 come with, 8? I know IIS7 came with Vista. I just want VS 2008 to work creating Visual C++ and ASP.NET sites in C#, that's all I use it for. I need to load on Oracle 10g as well.

Also, can anyone tell me if IE8 still has that background colors bug? Go to Reviews and News on Tech Products, Software and Downloads - PC World - then click Print Preview and see if the red background shows up. When I used IE8 in Vista that bug was there as well.

Ah, Apache, great web server. Unfortunately my corporate clients don't like the idea of anything free, they automatically assume it means no support and doesn't work. I'll be trying Apache on Windows 7 as well.

I think it's 7.5 but not certain, I like my Apache!

Apache is rock-solid and in my opinion, the best server out there. I can see your clients worries but open-source can definitly have its benefits.
The only problem is that it requires alot of setting up compared to 'out-of-the-box' servers.

EDIT: Ironically I forgot to say... this forum has an 'Edit' function lol!

You sure it is a bug? That also has to do with IE, not the OS.

Just figured it out, Backgrounds DO work! You have to enable 'Print background colours and pictures' in page options inside print preview!
(I also enabled it in IE's Advanced Internet Options)
