Michael Niehaus' Windows and Office deployment ramblings
Kevin Turner (Microsoft's COO) announced during his keynote session at the Worldwide Partner Conference this week that Windows Server 2008, Visual Studio 2008, and SQL Server 2008 will all launch on February 27, 2008. While that probably feels like a long time off to you, I can assure you that it instills in me a sense of panic: We are planning to offer full Windows Server 2008 (and Windows Server 2003) deployment support in the next version of BDD. The days are ticking away...
Rest assured we are working hard on this and have it working well in our labs already, so we will be fully prepared for this launch date.
Now, keep in mind that the System Center Configuration Manager 2007 launch date is several months earlier, so if the Windows Server 2008 date makes me panic, just imagine what that SCCM date must do :-)
p.s. If you are in Denver at the conference, be sure to look me up.
