In case you haven't heard, the Windows Server 2008 and Windows Vista SP1 have been released to manufacturing today (Monday, Feb 4)! To learn more about what's new in the Windows Vista SP1 and see how excited the Windows Server 2008 team has been, please check out these latest blog posts with a few photos:
For those of you who are starting to plan for upcoming migration to Windows Server 2008 and/or Windows Vista SP1, you should definitely check out the network-wide assessment tool from our team called Microsoft Assessment and Planning 3.0. This tool is an expanded version of the already-popular Windows Vista Hardware Assessment tool released last year and offers network-wide desktops and servers inventory with auto-generated readiness reports and proposals you need. The best part - this tool is totally free and has already been used by thousands of customers and consultants.
