For those of you that are not able to get out to a  Launch event, you can still get Windows 2008 Server to evaluate.  Just click the graphic to head out to the download site. I would also recommend you go download (for free!) Virtual PC or Virtual Server and install Windows 2008 to a virtual machine. That way you aren't burning up a machine just for Windows 2008.
