Longhorn Beta Bundles

A bundle of 64-bit tools based around Longhorn for midsize businesses is in beta. When complete, the pack will boast SQL Server, Exchange, ISA Server, with management chores taken care of by System Center Essentials. Microsoft hopes this bundle, codenamed Centro, will be easier to install and manage than Linux-based rivals. My guess is we'll find that answer in early 2008. There's also help on the way for small businesses in the form of "Cougar," a new version of Small Business Server with much the same basic lineup as Centro.
