It has already been reported that Microsoft will release Windows Server 2008 to manufacturing as early as the
first week of February, but no later than the official availability date. Justin Graham, Account Technology Specialist at Microsoft, has revealed that the company is now in the Super Bowl. And if the development process of Windows Server 2008 was the entire championship, the Super Bowl, being the championship game, is also the last stage before the final Windows Server 2008 touchdown (so to speak).
"My name is Justin Graham. My sole lot in life is to make sure IT Professionals have what they need to get a head start on Windows Server 2008. I have no other purpose really, my team is not in the Super Bowl, I work 5.4*10^12 hours per week, and I eat ramen still. The good part of this is I'm developing some exciting things for the IT Pro Community for the Launch," Graham stated, indicating a few resources for the community.
"First, HeroesCommunityLaunch. Visit this website, perhaps multiple times a day, to find the latest information on localized training events held in your area. This is our effort to bring the content to YOU. If there is no local launch event in your area listed on HeroesHappenHere, then find one here," Graham explained.
Microsoft has also debuted a series of webcasts staring on January 21st, 2008. Graham pointed to the new resources made available as a way to become familiar with the key aspects and technologies in Windows Server 2008, SQL Server 2008 and Visual Studio.
