Memory + CPU support for all SQL Server versions and editions

It is by no means uncommon to think that every DBA should have a list like this following one in order to have clear some aspects before installing/implementing new database environments. It is a compact brief of what different versions and editions of SQL Server support in terms of memory and CPU resources. Consequently, I share with you my resume, and I hope you find it useful. Let me know any remarks you may have.
