As I discussed back in Dec it takes us several months to release all of the language/SKU combinations of SQL Server. While the rest of us have been off having fun on SP1 and the next version the release services team and Loc team have been beavering away to complete this. Last week they released the final versions. So you should be able to get CD/DVDs copies of all SQL Server SKUs in all languages, nice one.

As a piece of trivia I thought this was interesting(from the GPM for Release Management of SQL Server)

"...we pushed 760GB of product through the automated Microsoft Operations release process...
