Firstly some good news ;-). We have been saying we would Release to Manufacturing (RTM) Windows Server 2008 by the end of the calendar year. This is no longer the case. We are  instead intending to RTM in the first quarter of calendar year 2008. The change surprised me a little as my own customers were very positive about Beta 3 but... it is good news if it means we can notch up the quality bar even higher before we ship. You can read more on this over at the Windows Server Divisions Weblog.
