When is Windows Svr 2008 R2 RTM out?

With all the interest in Windows 7, Server 2008 R2 is getting as much love as it was perhaps expecting. However as many of the best features of Windows 7 rely on Svr R2-it’s a good idea to know when you can get your hands on it:

ISV & IHV Partners: August 14th

Microsoft Certified/Gold Certified Partners: August 19th

Microsoft Action Pack Subscribers: August 23rd

OEMs: July 29th

Volume Licensing customer with Software Assurance: August 19th

Volume Licensing customer without Software Assurance: September 1st

TechNet/MSDN Subscribers: August 14th

Retail Channel: September 14th

According to Twitter-it could be August 19th for Technet/MSDN…

One thing I do find funny is that Microsoft are still telling customers it’s release date is January…but if you really push them, they’ll go to November 🙂
