There will be no difference in the service packs.
SQL 2005 has "MVCC" (they call it something different, of course, but
that's basicallyi what it is)

There is a big difference between your database and your cellphone.
There are a lot of systems out there running very solidly on older
products like MSSQL 7 (probably even some on 6.x), as well as Oracle 7,8
and 9...
I'd say there is generally a huge difference in reliabilty in your
cellphone hw/sw than there is in your db hw/sw. I have yet to see a
cellphone that can run for a year without a reboot (or with a lot of
brands, complete replacement).
