Congrats Microsoft: Windows Server 2008 is RTM

I cannot state it any better: the best Windows Server release ever has been released to manufacturing – Windows Server 2008 is finished.

Windows Server 2008 is very stable and very well-done for production use. As I wrote before we at Computacenter are using it since October 2007 in Production, and I have a customer where we already run a full shop only on Vista and 2k8 since September (on Beta 3).

And we’ve also done a lot of things, to quickly recap just what we’ve done with customers was a 10-city Roadshow in Germany (half-day sessions on WS2k8, last one will be in Berlin next week), countless presentations at customer or trade shows / events, countless sessions to make sure our staff is ready to sell and deliver WS2k8-Solutions, one press-release in October, and a couple references which will be published shortly.We will be with many people at the German Launchevent, are partner there with a booth, and I’ll deliver 3 sessions plus a interactive one, created many flyers and solutions around the product, … just being ready to deliver.

I’m very excited about the new product – let’s start deploying more of it!

And here are the blogs which will give you a feeling how it was at Microsoft in the last couple hours:

Windows Server 2008 – RTM!!!
