I agree with Robert. In fact map 2009 performs much better than 2008 and has
new capability.
BTW (not in the aforementioned thread) be careful when you see FDO on the
esri website it is usually referring to an internal ADO component not the
opensource data connection.

The thread you mention is not only 1.5 years old but also talks about Map
2007 which has been released in April 2006.  It is using much  older version
of the ArcSDE FDO provider. Since then Map 2008 and Map 2009 have been
released on updated FDO version and support for 9.2 has been added to ArcSDE
Provider.  Some of the problem discussed there are of course outdated mainly
the multiple connection issue inside Map.

We already posted an unofficial version of the ArcSDE provider supporting
9.3. At the moment, it won't support dbo user (on SQL Server) or Windows
authentication but it is the plan to support those features in the 3.4
release.  Unofficial build can be downloaded from here

Some user on this thread have actually indicated that they used the existing
provider using 9.3 client components against 9.3 server without any problem.

As Romy mentioned, you can download the latest patch for the provider
depending on the version of FDO you want to use.  Go to the FDO download
page  http://fdo.osgeo.org/content/downloads.

Hope it helps.

Is there any estimate on when FDO will support ArcSDE

The GIS administrator I am working with pointed me to
the thread below from an ESRI forum that says some
interesting things about FDO and SDE. I would be
interested in other FDO users experience with SDE
regarding stability, locking tables, database
connections etc. I realize the thread is over a year
old and there may have been some changes since these
comments were posted.
