 Why migrate from 6.5 to 2000
We have an opportunity to upgrade from SQL 6.5 to 2000 if
we can prove to the buisness leader that there is real
tangible benefits for doing so.  Has anyone done this and
captured the benefits?  For example, savings in money,
people resources, computer resources, performance ect.

You can also do your own performance comparisons.

Download the 120-day evaluation version of SQL Server 2000.
http://www.microsoft.com/sql/evaluation/trial/

You can also just download Books Online to review the
'What's New' section.
http://www.microsoft.com/sql/techinfo/productdoc/2000/books.asp

Upgrade your database on a test server and try out your
slowest, ugliest queries. Create a few examples of how to
improve your software using new features such as XML,
user-defined functions, new data types, full-text search,
improved security.

Sometimes the most persuasive argument is a trial upgrade
of your own applicaiton.
