Long live Windows Server 2008 R2

The Windows Server Division has named the next server Windows Server 2008 R2. The release would be 'just' a "minor" or Update release. In a blog posting, Windows Server '7' aka "Windows Server 2008 R2", the team announced that the plan is to keep up with a two-year minor release, four-year major release cycle for servers. The current version of the Windows Server 2008 Product Roadmap shows that R2 will release in 2010. It explains that an update release "integrate[s] the previous major release with the latest service pack, selected feature packs, and new functionality." About the client release Ward Ralston (Group Program Manager) stated, that "The client will be a major release, but, as we’ve said before, compatibility with previous versions of Windows Vista and Windows Server 2008 is a design goal."
