SQL Server 2000 Environments
SQL Server, in addition to being available in a number of editions, also runs on a number of Windows platforms. However, certain editions will only run on certain platforms. This section takes a look at the platforms on which SQL Server runs and the editions it supports.
Windows 98 and Windows Me
Windows 98 and Windows Me are designed primarily for the home PC user. Windows 98 is still in use on the desktop in many corporate shops as well. Windows 98 and Windows Me are intended to support mobile users who are disconnected from the network but need to run applications that require SQL Server data storage, or for users who need to run local applications that require local SQL Server data storage on the computer.
