Longhorn Server Beta 3 will ship in early March according to industry sources. The exciting thing is that it will be a CTP, publically available!

Longhorn Server will focus on Virtulization, especially on x64 bit hardware. LH Server will also be closely integrated with Office and Windows Vista. There will also be a vast improvement in Terminal Services.

If you haven't signed up to be notified of the release, you can do it here.

Sweet, especially the bit about virtualization. I heard they're going to integrate it in the way Xen does. My dual-core VT box is waiting! :D

Not really on-topic, but this is the closest thing we have to an LH Server topic, and I thought I'd mention this in case any of you don't know about it (I only just saw it, but I guess it might be common knowledge here): if you need a Product Key for Longhorn Server, put TE06-KVM4-3RM9 in the invites box on Connect, and you will get one ;) You don't get a download of LH Server, so you will need to have got that from somewhere else, but apparently this Key works (I don't have LH Server so can't test it though).

I also read this news, and i registered myself to Technet / Microsoft - I hope I can test it. I think its the better Vista :roll:
Somebody know if Microsoft will be releasing an x86 Version of LH PB 3 ? alternative to the x64 ?¿?

Of course there will be an x86 version. All LH Server betas they have released so far are available for x86, x64 and IA64. AFAIK, the next server OS will be x64 (and IA64?) only.

I've just re-read one of the reviews that were linked from MS's site on windowsitpro.com - here. He goes on to say
Quote:
Microsoft's upcoming server products will be x64-only, though the initial Longhorn version will also ship in 32-bit versions

Killing off the 32-bit versions? Surely not! Or at least, in the distant future (hopefully!)

Well, could be. Exchange Server 2007 is x64 only, some features like Windows Virtualization are x64-only as well.
