Any benefit of running SQL2008 R2 SSMS over SQL2008 SSMS
I don't have any SQL2008 instances for real, just one as a sandpit, but I use SQL2008 Management Studio for all my admin and dev tasks (excluding SSRS). Is there any benefit to installing SQL2008 R2 SSMS, or am I more likely to run into issues with my SSMS add-ins?
Based on all my testing... if you're not taking advantage of any of the functionality of R2, and there isn't much, then no, there's no real reason to do it. I'm not even sure all those "new" scripting capabilities are new. I sure didn't see anything in the XML that I've been pulling up.
