Really nice branding in this one. They changed "Windows Server (TM)" to "Windows Server ". Interestingly, this is called a RC, so maybe it's (pre-)RC1?.

Very Nice and Clean. They seem to be in the home-stretch now. I definatley prefer this version over Vista any day.

Was it on connect yesterday?
I got a copy somewhere else and installed it. Looks great, loads fast and way better than vista.

Edit: build tag is 6001.16648.longhorn_rc0.070827-1405
A RC0 build should be release soon since I don't think this is the RC0 build.

If someone posts a torrent I'll use the AbyssUnderground FTP to get it.

Only a few more months until this is released and it is looking really good already, it probably is too early to use this as a regular operating system, wait for RC1 or RC2 I guess...

Recently they said that they were delaying it until next year though (and Vista SP1 will come out at around the same time).

I will download Beta 3 when the weather is better lots of wind and a storm tonight (wireless)

I like how it looks, its clean I know those who hate vista will either switch to Server 2008, Linus, Mac or keep with XP.

I didn't use a torrent to get it, and it's too big for me to upload.

Again this torrent doesnt have seeders and the tracker says:

Connection limited exceeded! You may only leech from only location at a time.

Please, someone just upload it to sillyproject.
Then your going to make me and many people happy.

Edit:
@m4rkuz
This is the SAME TORRENT as ''iwanttogohome'' posted.
