Microsoft has set the official launch date of Windows Server 2003 to April 24, 2003. The operating system product family, which was recently renamed from Windows .NET Server 2003, will launch in San Francisco alongside Visual Studio 2003, the company says.
"Microsoft will unveil [Windows Server 2003 and Visual Studio 2003] and demonstrate how customers can quickly build, deploy and manage a complete server solution for connected platforms," Bob O'Brien, Windows Server Group Product Manager told me Thursday.
Windows Server 2003 is the successor to Windows 2000 Server. It began life as Whistler Server, alongside Windows XP, then known simply as Whistler. However, after the Beta 2 release of both products in early 2001, the release schedules diverged, and Windows XP was eventually released in October 2001.
