Today, the Windows Server Team announced that Windows Server 2008 R2 has reached the Released To Manufacturing (RTM) milestone, which means this latest release of Windows Server 2008 R2 is now blessed by engineering as ready for the manufacturing process. This announcement comes on the same day as the announcement that Windows 7 RTM’s! This truly marks a very exciting time for the Windows Server and Windows Client teams and all of our Partners and customers around the world!
According to the Windows Server Division Blog Post, there are many reasons to rejoice. Here are just a select few:
One question I am sure will come up that the Windows Server Team has already addressed is, those of you already running Windows Server 2008 don't need new Client Access Licenses (CALs) when updating to Windows Server 2008 R2, which helps make for a very cost-effective upgrade.
Thanks again to the Windows Server Division for posting this information up on their Team Blog and congratulations on reaching the RTM stage!
Thank you and have a wonderful day,
