Windows Codename Longhorn will be Marketed as Server 2008

Quote:

It was well known that the official title of the software would either be Windows Server 2007 or 2008, depending on when it was released. The product will be available in four different editions: web, standard, enterprise, and datacenter. These are the same designations that were given to its predecessor, Windows Server 2003.

The software is built from the same basic layout as Windows Vista, but adds several server-specific features.

New additions to the 2008 edition include the ability to set granular passwords within a single domain, meaning accounts can be set individually with separate priveleges, instead of one sweeping account for the entire domain.

Additionally, a new tool called Server Manager improves on similar offerings from Server 2003 by presenting a roles management application in a graphical user interface that shows server options in a clearer, more user-friendly setting.

There are also enhanced connection features to Windows Vista, improving on the client-side settings from the Server 2003/Windows XP pairing. Such features include locally caching files on connected Vista PCs and advanced indexing capabilities.

lol Joe

Makes sense to market it as Server 2008 - it looks better from a Corporate perspective. We're getting Server 2008 is better in corporate talk then "We're getting Longhorn". Actually that sounds a bit rude

Lol, na, it will ship by the end of this year. They're already at Beta 3, and RC1 is nearing.

I've been using it and it's suprisingly stable with limmited bugs.

I'll more than likely be upgrading from Vista to 2k8 when it's available. Server 'Doze FTW.

Agreed. If it works as well as 2k3 as a standard desktop OS then I'll be switching.
