Windows Server 2008 and Vista SP1

As I’m very sure has been copiously reported elsewhere, on Monday Microsoft released to manufacturing Windows Server 2008. Also on Monday, Microsoft RTM’ed Windows Vista SP1.

According to Microsoft’s published roadmaps, the RTM of Windows Server 2008 signals the start of the 180 day countdown to the final release of Hyper-V, Microsoft’s hypervisor. Microsoft has included a beta build of Hyper-V in the RTM build of Windows Server 2008, but it’s the same build released in December so there’s nothing new there.

I hope VMware’s ready…the virtualization landscape is about to get a lot more competitive.
