Yes! It’s finally official! BillG announced it at WinHEC today.
Now we all have to train ourselves to stop saying “Windows Server Codename: Longhorn” and just say “Windows Server 2008”.
“Kevin! I thought it was going to ship by the end of this year? Does this mean I’m going to have to wait until ’08 to get it?”
Hey.. for all I know (not much) it may still RTM this year, and then “General Availability” in early ’08. (Remember… Vista RTM’d in late ’06 but most people couldn’t buy it ’til 07.)
