Can you tell it's an R2 Friday?
Manufacturing Snag To Cause Slight SBS 2003 R2 Delay
Vlad blogged that the Microsoft has figured out beta testing with Vista.....but I'm embarrassed to say that SBS sure didn't. The business brain of me wants to say "well it's a good thing this is being handled correctly", the IT geek side of me wants to complain about the beta and how it was run, but since there's probably some NDA agreement somewhere that is keeping me from talking about the beta experience, I won't.
All I will say is that I will put MS on notice... SBS Longhorn will be a big leap.. 64 bit... and I can't nor won't offer up any production box for that test. It's too high of a price to pay and I'm not that insane to risk clients and my own office like that... so when you plan on your 64 bit era betas... make it a bigger beta, get lots of feedback....
