Longhorn Server Gets A Name: Windows Server 2008

The only surprise that could come from Windows Server codename: Longhorn would be if Microsoft named it anything other than Windows Server 2007. Well, Microsoft surprised me, they decide to name it Windows Server 2008. Ooooh! What a curveball! I shoulda seen it coming, as release looked like it would be later this year, possibly just after the beginning of next year. Thanks to Mary Jo Foley for making the discovery and Robert McLaws for getting a lot of confirmation.
