Hopefully you're aware of some of the great changes brought about in Windows Server 2003 R2 to address some of the branch office challenges - my personal favourite has to be the DFS-N & DFS-R changes and the use of RDC to make effective use of bandwidth - indeed my growing home empire (complete with two sites now - don't ask) is already making use of RDC for off-site backups. So what's going to be happening with the Branch Office in Windows Server Codename "Longhorn". To find out more, and I apologies for the somewhat short notice, at 6PM this evening UK time, there's an online chat about what technology is coming in Longhorn.

The chat-room will be live shortly before 6PM (10AM PST) and you can enter by clicking here.
