Evaluation Edition is Closer to Enterprise Edition

I've seen customers end up with inaccurate benchmarks by conducting tests on SQL Server Evaluation Edition (which is basically Enterprise Edition) when they plan to deploy Standard Edition. In the same vein, SQL Server Developer Edition is essentially Enterprise Edition with a few extra licensing restrictions, so performance could vary between queries running on Developer Edition versus those running on Standard Edition. Keep these distinctions in mind when you're working with different editions of SQL Server.
