I heard there were some early Cougar builds due for leakage, quite a while ago, but haven't seen hide nor hair of them yet. Have they not been released yet?

Centro != Cougar.

Centro: Essential Business Server
Cougar: Small Business Server

Both servers, but each aimed at a different target group.

What is chicago/cougar.
Chicago is the codename for windows 95, how does cougar relate to that.

Is there a complete history, anywhere, of the Chicago project? I bet that'd make an interesting read!

Do you have any literature to back that up.
I just spent 15 minutes searching yahoo and google for codenames, and only found chicago
links relating to win 95.
Strange how there's never been so much as a mention of it before now.
