SQL Server Compact 4 vs SQL Server Express 2008 R2 Side-by-side feature comparison

Everything SQL Server Compact - Comparison of SQL Server Compact 4 and SQL Server Express 2008 R2

”Now that SQL Server Compact 4 has been released, some developers are curious about the differences between SQL Server Compact 4.0 and SQL Server Express 2008 R2.

I have updated the comparison table from the excellent discussion of the differences between Compact 3.5 and Express 2005 here to reflect the changes in the newer versions of each product


I like this quick and simple side-by-side comparison of SQL CE4 vs SQL Express 2008 R2. A good initial stop if you’re trying to decide between the two…

Helpful post. I'm glad I read the comparison before I installed compact edition (while I already had express)
