It seems possible that SQL Server 2008 will be available from August. Comments made at Microsoft's Worldwide Partner Conference indicate that SQL Server 2008 is on the verge of being released.

Bob Kelly, Microsoft Corporate Vice President of Infrastructure Server Marketing, told attendees at the Conference that SQL Server 2008 will be on the August price list. It's not usual for Microsoft to have products on their price list that are not available, so there's a good chance the code could be signed off anytime in the next couple of weeks or so.
