Another Shot at Windows Small Business Server R2

Microsoft has re-released Windows Small Business Server 2003 R2 to OEMs. Quality control problems with the version originally released to OEMs in July caused Microsoft to recall the original code a month ago. The version sent to OEMs at the time contained non-final versions of a few core components. Originally, the product was expected to be available in August. The recall and re-release mean availability to system builders and availability pre-installed on server hardware from Dell and HP will now occur in September. Meanwhile, the company launched a new partner program for SBS 2003 R2, called "Assess & Win." Partners who conduct and submit five customer business assessments using the Technology Assessment Toolkit will receive a free, resaleable copy of SBS 2003 R2 Standard Edition.
