How Many SQL Server 2000 servers do you have?

I am just curious how many SQL 2000 servers there are still out there, versus SQL Server 2005 and SQL Server 2008. Do you have one? How many does your company have? And what's your impression of what percent of systems are still SQL 2000?

None that I am aware of at this time.

My guess would be 40-50% as it was/is a very stable platform and money has been tight in many markets since 2005 came out. Probably declining now that 2008 has been out for a year.

I have 150 apps running on about 20 production SQL Server 2000 servers (with the gods know how many dev/qa/staging/perftest/uat machines). I just finished doing a full evaluation of each of the apps using Microsofts Upgrade Advisor and Pragmatic Works DTS-X-Change. We're starting the process of moving the apps.

I work for a finacial company and we have many legacy systems still running on SQL 2000. I would say we are primarily SQL2000 and in the process of upgrading. We would like to move as much to SQL 2008 as possible but we run many vendor supported applications so we are at their mercy.

We don't have any left, but I believe that we have a db still in v8 compatibility mode.

I do regularly see lots of people that are looking to go from SQL 2000 to SQL 2008 asking questions.

I think we've got one out of the three live boxes that I have regular contact with.

New code box

There's a new way to format code on the site - the red speech bubble logo will automatically format T-SQL for you. The original code box is still there for XML, etc. More details here.
