So starting tomorrow Teched will be starting in Atlanta - you can watch the kick off keynotes at 9 am eastern.
Translation since it starts so early, I wouldn't do the normal cloud buzz keynote game with beer, rather grab orange juice, grape juice or apple juice and drink a swig each time the word "Cloud" is said by any of the speakers. I'm also embarrassed to say that the two keynote speakers ...Robert Wahbe and Jason Zander .... I'm going .. who?... someone from Servers and Tools and one from Visual Studio.
Tonight, however there appears to be some briefing that Microsoft did with Tech Reviewers and some info comes out via twitter - specically Paul Thurott's twitter feed. http://twitter.com/#!/thurrott/status/69742658230300672
So here goes a little reading between the lines of the twitter conversations.
The windows 7 phone gadget talked about by Paul Thurrott and the Windows blog will be out in 3 to 4 weeks - http://twitter.com/#!/thurrott/status/69843358318739456
OEM versions of SBS essentials will be coming out by the end of May, first of June - http://twitter.com/#!/thurrott/status/69845857037582336
HP however will not be doing a Windows Home Server OEM release - http://twitter.com/#!/thurrott/status/69896239981932546
On the facebook coffee coaching page - http://www.facebook.com/CoffeeCoaching they were VERY specific to point out that Home server was not supported on the microserver box. Which is a real shame since it, like SBS-E fits very nicely on that box.
Now that said, are you REALLY sure you want to be recommending OEM servers to your clients.
"But Susan - it's so much cheaper"
But Dude, if you want to do any sort of DR that ultimately moves the box into a virutalization platform you are screwed. OEM licneses die with the hardware (unless it's under warranty and all that normal stuff that allows you to transfer it.
Think about future proofing that system and long term planning. Show your clients the options here.
