Hi Everyone,

The Small Business Server team has been heads down for many months now conjuring up the latest offering of our all-in-one solution server. We are now very pleased to announce that Windows Small Business Server "7" Preview is now available to download and test.

Built on Windows Server 2008 R2, Windows SBS "7" includes Exchange Server 2010 SP1, Microsoft SharePoint Foundation 2010, and Windows Software Update Services. Additionally, there are many enhancements to the security and management features, as well as more robust features for providing file-and-print, email, and Internet services to employees. Windows SBS "7" also includes significantly enhanced migration tools that will help you upgrade your server so you can take advantage of the new and improved technologies.

We are very proud of the work that we have done thus far, and owe much of it to your feedback and participation in the Customer Experience Improvement Program. However, the work is not done yet! If you are not already a beta tester, consider becoming one today! We need your help to make Windows SBS "7" even better. For information about Windows SBS "7" and about how you can become a beta tester, visit the Windows Small Business Server Beta page at the Microsoft website.

Happy autumn!
