Tomorrow is the big launch of Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2, the next major Microsoft operating system releases. A significant change this time around is the simultaneous release of the client and server. However, I may have inadvertently uncovered the truth today:
Windows Server 2008 R2 will not be version 7 at all!
Actually, Windows Server 2008 R2 will be version 6.1. Will it still be binary compatible with Windows 7?
Sorry about that folks… don’t panic, Windows 7 is version 6.1, too.
