No longer called Cougar

Ok, so Microsoft has finally gotten around to making SBS 2008 a real product. It even now has its own web site :

Still digesting exactly what all the information means but I thought this was interesting :

It has the following components as standard

  • Windows Server 2008 x64
  • Exchange 2007
  • Windows SharePoint Services 3.0
  • Windows Live OneCare for Server <<– **
  • Subscription to Forefront Security for Exchange Server Small Business Edition <<– **
  • Integration with Office Live Small Business <<– **
  • Enhancements to mobile and remote working tools and management

So Microsoft is trying to make SBS 2008 an all encompassing product eh? I wonder how the people at Trend feel now they are getting cut out?

The whole press release is here :

I’ll write some more when I’ve had time to digest all this new info.
