Goodbye ‘Longhorn’… Hello ‘Windows Server 2008’

No more "Longhorn"! 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?”

Probably. 

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.)
