Erin Stellato dispels some myths:
Myth #1 Azure Data Studio is the only standalone solution now that SSMS is deprecated.
SQL Server Management Studio (SSMS) is not deprecated. We thought about writing that in ALL CAPS, but figured bold is sufficient. SSMS has not been deprecated, and we are not planning on deprecating it. You will see new functionality being added to Azure Data Studio, but we have a fair number of things lined up for SSMS, including migration to the Visual Studio 2022 shell, which brings 64-bit support.
Bold plus all caps might have been a bit too much, yeah.
