Breaking News: Longhorn Beta 3 is history… Windows Server 2008 RC0 is HERE!

Bill at the "naming" of Windows Server 2008 Oh yeah!  Another “release” of sorts.  Windows Server 2008 Release Candidate (RC) Zero (0) – or “RC0” for short – is finally RTTWWW (Release to the World Wide Web – or “RTW” for short).

“Sweeet!  Gimme gimme gimme!”

Hold on there, sunshine.  You’ll have to download it like everybody else.

Sign up for the CTP (Customer Technology Preview).

Or you could get it as a TechNet Subscriber, too.  (I don’t see it in the downloads yet, but I’ll let you know when I do.)

UPDATE: As you see in the comments to this post, Kathy Dixon (who is the person at Microsoft responsible for TechNet Plus, and who I interviewed for Virtual TechEd earlier this year) says that the RC0 download will be available sometime on Thursday, September 27.  I’m going to keep an eye on her blog for news of when it has finally gone live.

And an additional note – I see that the Windows Server Division has a blog

It’s not a new blog, but now might be a really good time to add them to your RSS feeds.
