Windows 7 Ultimate x64 RTM

Visual Studio 2008 can be installed on Windows 7 fairly easily.

SQL server is a memory hungry application and if you are going to be using it for anything reasonably large, I would seriously consider buying a cheap desktop PC, upgrading the RAM, and running SQL from there.
