So, What's Happening on November 12, 2008?

At World Wide Partner Conference, the Windows SBS team announced November 12th, 2008 as the official launch date for Windows Small Business Server 2008 and Windows Essential Business Server 2008. Activities that day will signal general availability of both products in most markets and via most channels, and will kick off launch efforts worldwide. More information about specific launch activities will be communicated in the future. Code completion of both products and release to manufacturing (RTM) - hand off to our partners and distributors - will occur prior to the November 12 launch.

Hopefully this clears up some of the questions you might have had.

So as a subscriber to the Microsoft Action Pack, when will we receive these 2 new goodies?

Unfortunately, being on the product team, I have no insight as to when these will make it into the action pack. Likely between september, and the end of the year would be my best guess... sorry I can't be clearer

Thank you for the quick reply and great blog. I'll have to add you to my shortlist. I'm really looking forward to Small Business Server 2008 mainly because of what I've seen here. Especially your comparison chart.
