Windows Server 2008: The Next Big Moneymaker

Let's make one thing perfectly clear: This is not Vista. Or at least, we don't think it is. Microsoft is launching Windows Server 2008 today, a long-awaited weapon in Redmond's arsenal of products and a potential gold mine for partners.

Forget the mostly false hype that surrounded Vista. There's genuine buzz about this new product. Partners are excited about it. Customers want it. Microsoft has even seen fit -- for some bizarre reason -- to throw a service pack into it. And now, it's in your hands, partners.

RCPmag.com has coverage of today's event, including a Scott Bekker article about what system builders are planning to do with Windows Server 2008.

There's not much else for us to say, really, but stay tuned to http://rcpmag.com throughout the day for updates. We'd love to hear your thoughts on what Windows Server 2008 can do for your business. Send them to [email protected].
