I just saw that the RC1 release of Windows Server 2008 was posted for public download today, as described at http://www.microsoft.com/presspass/press/2007/dec07/12-05WS08RC1PR.mspx. I guess this one should one of the last (if not the very last) public release before release to manufacturing, so if you've been waiting for a feature-complete pre-release version to try, wait no longer. Download right now from http://www.microsoft.com/ws08eval...
