Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Moving from SQL Server 2005 to SQL Server 2008 provides you with: Resource Governor, Transparent Data Encryption, Enhanced BI Sync Framework, Data Compression/Backup Compression, Policy-Based Management, New Data Types (spatial, dates and time), new-highly scalable SSRS architecture (removal of IIS dependency). These are the key improvements for 2008 + the enhancements to R2 that I described earlier.
