Windows Server Roadmap Gets an Update

The Windows Server Roadmap, a handy document on Microsoft's Web site with rough delivery date guidance, got an update this month.

Windows Server Update Services, Windows Server 2003 "R2" and a beta of Windows "Longhorn" Server remain on tap for this year, according to the roadmap.

Next year will still bring a beta 2 of Longhorn Server, and now Microsoft has also committed to a second service pack for Windows Server 2003 in 2006. The first service pack for Windows Server 2003 took nearly two years to arrive.

The Windows Server Roadmap is available here.

Meanwhile, Microsoft has begun posting reams of information about Windows Server 2003 "R2" now that the public beta is available. Microsoft's R2 homepage is here.
