No more "Longhorn"! Yes!  It's finally official!  BillG announced it at WinHEC today. 

Now we all have to train ourselves to stop saying "Windows Server Codename: Longhorn" and just say "Windows Server 2008".

"Kevin!  I thought it was going to ship by the end of this year?  Does this mean I'm going to have to wait until '08 to get it?"


Hey.. for all I know (not much) it may still RTM this year, and then "General Availability" in early '08.  (Remember... Vista RTM'd in late '06 but most people couldn't buy it 'til 07.)
