Windows 7 and 2008 R2 To Be Relased and the Same Time, Hopefully
November 06, 2008
During the WinHEC Day 2 keynote, Corporate Vice President of Windows Server and Solutions Bill Laing showed off a number of the new features that Microsoft will deliver in Windows Server 2008 R2 — a k a “Windows 7 Server — when it ships in the next year or so. Among them: Support for up to 256 logical processors; branch-office caching, “Bitlocker to Go” drive encryption and other new technologies designed to work “better together” with Windows 7.(As far as actual ship targets go, last week, Microsoft Senior Vice President of Server and Tools Bob Muglia told me that Microsoft’s goal is to deliver Windows 7 client and server as closely, timing-wise, as possible. “We are planning to ship on the same day as they [the Windows client team] do,” Muglia said. If the server team makes good on that date, the R2 release might hit in 2009, not 2010, as officials have said they expect to do.)
