Q. When will Windows Server 2008 be available?

A. The Windows Server 2008 release to manufacturing (RTM) date was February 4, and you can download the release candidate (RC) evaluation software from the MSDN Server 2008 Developer Center ( msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/windowsserver/default.aspx) and other Microsoft Web sites. There are no separate images for Standard, Enterprise, and Datacenter versions. Instead, each architecture provides all three versions on one media set, so there are Server 2008 x86 and Server 2008 x64 DVDs. Windows Web Server 2008 is on its own media set. Server 2008 without Hyper-V—Microsoft's hypervisor-based virtualization product—is also available.
