Longhorn Server. The ideal host for all the stuff I usually preach about from here, as we all know architecture can't live in a vacuum... and if you thought that it is still too far for thinking about how to leverage it, well, it's probably the right moment to reconsider [:)] 2007 is behind the corner, if you want to be ready with your solutions right at ship time.
We are well aware of that: in fact, on April 11-13th the product group is going to tell our partners about all the great things that our next major server platform offers for ISV developers. This is a party where self invitations are more than welcome, go to http://www.longhornsdr.com/ for complete agenda and logistic details! Neil and Volker are doing an excellent coverage of the event too, check out their blogs for fresh news on the subject. I'll try to show up, especially to the Application Server and, obviously, for the Identity and WinFx in general... see you there!
