At the Microsoft Management Summit this week, Microsoft execs provided some official names and more specific timetables for several products under development.
"Monad," the Windows scripting shell, is now "Windows PowerShell." PowerShell is slated to be available for download in Q4 2006.
Microsoft Exchange 12 is now officially (and expectedly) known as "Exchange Server 2007."
Microsoft Operations Manager (MOM) version 3 is now "System Center Operations Manager 2007," while Systems Management Server (SMS) version 4 will become "System Center Configuration Manager 2007." Both of these rechristened System Center apps are slated to ship next year.
