If you've been reading this blog or the SQL Express Forum you've undoubtably seen me write about SQL Server 2005 Compact Edition (SQL CE) as an alternative database for use when writing client applications that require local data storage. SQL CE is the evolution of SQL Mobile, with support added for Windows desktop operating systems.

I'll let you explore to find the details; if you're developing applications that require local storage, be sure to check out SQL CE.
