    Considering that Microsoft are based in the US - it may be another few hours yet as most of them are probably still in bed! lol

    Nooooo!!

    That can't be right. Microsoft have billed themselves as an international company, so if I lived in China I would be expecting to have my hands on this by now.

    "As always, current Windows Volume License customers, MSDN subscribers and TechNet subscribers will get first customer access, getting Windows 7 on August 6 (MSDN/TechNet) and August 7 (VL), and Windows Server 2008 R2 the second half of August."

    What's nice is we should also get it on MVLS today as well (as long as we have school agreements)
    Microsoft UK Schools News Blog : Windows 7 availability date announced ? 7th August for many
    Got some DC upgrades waiting on this

    ugh wait a sec, am I right in that we can not get hold of 2008 R2 officially until the 19th or later?
    (seen here Microsoft UK Schools News Blog : Free Event - Windows 7 & Windows Server 2008 R2 ? 21 Aug 2009)
    That... really sucks >.< That's what I want the most, The sooner it is released offically, the sooner we can upgrade our DC's and 2008 member servers

    edit: Just read that it's August 14th for technet/MSDN but it's still an annoying delay!

    What do you need in R2 that you don't have in the standard 2008 already? I had a look through the new features and couldn't think how any of them would be applicable to most places!

    R2 will have all the GPOs for Windows 7 -
    Most can be controlled with 2008 but ther are some newer stuff that cant (libraries, new taskbar, etc..)

    People are rolling out Win7 straight away?! I rate it very highly but I'm not sure I'd be that gung-ho

    edit: love the signature!

    Same for me at home. Have you been using it across your network as well? Any problems at all?
