Paul Flessner is one of my favorite VPs. Here is a recent high level talk that Paul and others gave on SQL Server 2005 http://www.microsoft.com/seminar/shared/asp/view.asp?url=/seminar/en/20050906_isvconnect/manifest.xml&rate=2. The talk is for ISVs that sell database based applications but it is nice high level look at SQL Server 2005 and the thinking behind its development.
