SQL Server 2012 Upgrade Advisor

This is just a short one, but if you're moving to SQL v2012, I strongly encourage you to take a look at the Upgrade Advisor (UA).  I believe the UA to be largely improved from previous releases, but this is just my opinion.  Regardless, if you're performing an upgrade, I encourage you to check your environment for conflicts ahead of time.  There may be deprecations, or other changes that will cause breakage, and you want to know about these beforehand.  Where is the Upgrade Advisor ?
It is in the SQL v 2012 Feature Pack.  See here:

See this topic for much more information regarding the UA, and the different paths you can take to the v2012 engine:
