Today Windows Server 2008 and Vista released Service Pack 2 (pre-RTM) through the Customer Preview Program (CPP). MSDN and TechNet subscribers can download the SP2 CPP now, everyone else will have access this Thursday 12/14.
What’s pretty interesting is for the first time the same single service pack files can be deployed across the server (Server 2008) and the client (Vista SP1). Will this capability add any value in your organization or is it only a “that’s neat” type of response?
My colleague, Joey Snow, wrote up a good summary of what’s included with it and links to resources – which you can view his blog post on Edge.
