Longhorn's Official Name

May 22, 2007

Microsoft has announced that the name of its new release of Windows Server, formerly code-named "Longhorn," will be Windows Server 2008. This was apparently a difficult decision, so it was documented with a video.

Catchy, eh? Seriously, this probably means that the next version of Small Business Server is going to be named "2008" as well. A Microsoft SBS manager said in a discussion group that SBS requires an additional six months after the release of the server upon which it is based. It could thus be a year from now before the next SBS is ready.
