Is your SQL Server secure?
Wouldn't you rather spend your day learning all the funky new features in SQL Server 2008 than running all your daily checks over your instances? SQL Server 2008 introduced Policy Based Management which allows a fine-grained level of configuration and control of the instance's properties. The Enterprise Policy Management Framework takes this and extends it out to allow you to manage SQL 2000 and 2005 instances through policies as well.
