Release date for VS2008, SQL2008, and Windows Server 2008 Announced!
Soma announced this morning (bright and early at 2:13 AM!) the official dates for Server, VS, and SQL 2008’s launch dates.
During Tuesday’s kickoff our COO Kevin Turner announced that the company will be jointly launching Windows Server 2008, Visual Studio 2008 and SQL Server 2008 in Los Angeles on February 27, 2008. As the most important enterprise launch in the company history, February 27 will kick off a “launch wave” of hundreds of events that Microsoft will host worldwide.
That’s actually later than I expected; I was hoping for a 2007 date, but…
[Update 15 July 2007: From Doug Seven, the VSTS Sr. Product Manager:
While the launch events are scheduled to kick off on February 27, 2008, Visual Studio 2008 will be released before the end of the year.
