Microsoft Launches Windows Server Blog

Microsoft this month started a blog dedicated to its Windows Server family.

The Windows Server product team appears poised to use the blog as an information clearinghouse for minor product milestones, such as release candidates and other betas, to float trial balloons for potential features, and as a place to gather user input.

Located at http://blogs.msdn.com/windowsserver, the blog's initial entries all deal with the Windows Server 2003 x64 Editions from several product managers.

A Microsoft spokesperson said the blog will eventually include information about Windows Server 2003 "R2," Windows Small Business Server 2003 "R2" and Windows "Longhorn" Server. Later, technical product managers and developers will also post to the blog.

One of hundreds of public blogs appearing on Microsoft's MSDN site, the Windows Server blog is one of a handful that serves as an official information site for a product group.
