To next to no one's surprise, Microsoft is going to christen Longhorn Server "Windows Server 2008." And it might do so as early as next week to coincide with the Windows Hardware Engineering Conference (WinHEC) in Los Angeles.
Microsoft posted the new name on its Windows Hardware Engineering Conference (WinHec) 2007 press site.
If you look quickly (before anyone at Microsoft has a chance to undo this), you will see the new name, too. On the right hand column, the hotlink link for "Windows Server 2008 Reviewers Guide" takes you to Longhorn Server Beta 3 reviewer's guide.
Microsoft's official response on the new name: "Microsoft does not comment on rumors or speculation."
