Announcing Windows Server 2008

Microsoft has let it slip that Windows Server Code Name "Longhorn" will be called Windows Server 2008. Check out this screen captured from the Microsoft PressPass section of microsoft.com, the page that covers the forthcoming WinHEC conference.

On the right, it shows "related links," including one for the "Windows Server 2008 reviewers guide." (Click on the photo to see it full size.)

This was on the Microsoft site at 2:45 pm on Thursday, May 10. I expect it to come down as soon as they notice the leak. Clicking the Windows Server 2008 link brings you to a page that still uses the Longhorn code name.

That didn't take long. Microsoft took that down at 2:53 pm.
