Like all the new features, it's nice when you can dictate the db server version. Don't forget about the compatibility level setting of the database as I found out last month!
Now, if they could just get the query designer to remember the layout (x,y) of objects when I'm working on a query....every time, scroll down, drag tables/views up where I can see them all, and reposition so it makes sense...run query, if anything is wrong, repeat. Also, if it could remember it's last window state/position/screen that would convince me to start using newer versions of SSMS.
For me, SSMS 2016 fails with some MEF error every other time I need to use it, so I still do most work with 2014. I have 2017 which is OK but still slower to start than 2014. I really only use it to import Azure dbs.
I shared a google spreadsheet link to my boss.
Within a minute, I saw someone logging into the sheet. (Google Spreadsheet notifies this)
I hovered over the incoming user icon.. it says "Anonymous buffalo"
I had a burst of laughter, for a moment.
Guess it's better if google picks non-derogatory animal names for such labeling/avatar purpose.
I understand it's purely subjective & a cultural thing, but still companies should give a bit of importance to local culture/sentiments.
