    I read somewhere that longhorn has been officially named as Windows Server 2007. For the life of me I cannot place it. Any one any ideas?

    My question is...

    What can they change or add to make the new server OS better? I think server 2003 is good as it is.

    Thanks for the link. We were discussing this at work and wondering about getting it on a trial basis when it gets released

    Funny you should mention that Harry but I've heard that M$ actually started with a *nix kernel when they developed NT. (I'm not joking either)

    I thought it was OS/2. NT was originally going to be OS/2 version 3.0.

    A lot of the old NT stuff was unix based (not linux), that was, afterall the predominant network operating system around at the time

    thats why certain caveats have always been present in the console that gave it away

    there are lots of exciting features in Longhorn that I'm looking forward to, the Virtualisation services, Windows Remote Management, WDS (sort of like RIS on steroids), integrated Powershell
    Longhorn Core, its shaping up to be a very nice edition

    Beta copies are available on MSDN and I imagine Technet as part of the CTP stuff, that would be my first point of call if you want to get hold of a copy

    They are also releasing what they call the 'core' server OS'. These are basically servers designed to perform a very specific function, and have only what is required to do that function (eg dhcp server). These stripped back servers are incredibly basic, and therefore (theoretically) more stable and secure:

    From the beta testing I've done there are two specific functions which I feel will be widely praised. The first being the servercore installs which allow for a cut down operating environment (specific roles only). The second is the new enhanced features of Terminal Services such as remote applications. This allows for a thin client deployment using TS, including access over the web via a web interface.
