OK, so I'm a bit late on posting on this one - my excuse is that I've been on holiday for the last month, and it's hardly earth-shattering news anyway, but there has been a little speculation on whether Longhorn would be Windows Server 2007 or 2008. Windows Server 2008 is the choice and this makes good sense (assuming the projected launch dates are met), as the majority of launch activities will be early in 2008 - it also means the graphic designers will have an easier job converting the 3 to an 8 on the logos! With launch momentum beginning to build, today saw the arrival of the "Face of Windows Server 2008" portal -  a new campaign site with loads of information for IT Pros, customers and partners.

As a side note, the creative idea for the campaign originated here in Australia - you can even join the community and upload your own photo which will be morphed together with the other community mugshots to deliver a composite image that is truly the "Face of Windows Server 2008"! By popular demand I won't be uploading my photo, as colleagues tell me I have a "face for radio"....
