Windows Vista only a replacement for XP – Windows Server is still codenamed Longhorn

A few days back, I commented on Microsoft’s announcement of Windows Vista (formerly codenamed Longhorn), speculating as to whether this new name included the next generation Windows server product. It seems not, at least according to the Microsoft Windows Vista Beta 1 fact sheet.

I’m one of the 10,000 beta testers for Windows Vista (not a particularly exclusive club I know…) as well as Longhorn Server and Internet Explorer 7 so I guess I’ll blog some more about Vista after I’ve used it for a while – in the meantime Paul Thurrott has a Vista FAQ on his SuperSite for Windows.
