Windows Server 'R2' Details Begin to Leak
Contributed by: G3nu1n3, at 11/12/2004 05:48:00 PM.

'R2' still has yet to go to beta, but Microsoft is well on its way to finalizing the product due to ship in the latter half of 2005, according to sources.

Microsoft still has yet to release a wide-scale beta of its next Windows Server release, code-named "R2." But according to sources, the product is well on its way to being finalized, with packaging, licensing and support details already hammered out.

Microsoft officials said last month that R2 will ship in the latter half of 2005. To make that date, the company cut some features, such as network-access protection and file sharing over HTTP, from the product, officials acknowledged. But if it's due relatively soon, why has R2 yet to go to beta?

R2 is expected to include some new features and functionality, but it won't be much more than Windows Server 2003 Service Pack 1 (SP1) plus some of the myriad Windows Server 2003 service packs that the company has shipped since April 2003 (the date it shipped Windows Server 2003), according to Microsoft partners.

The ultimate goal with R2, like other "interim" Windows releases, is to allow customers to incorporate it into their environments with relatively little testing, said partner sources who requested anonymity.
