    Longhorn Server

    I have recieved a copy of this, but not found the time to install it anywhere yet, im still trying to find a dummy machine that will take it...

    I was wondering as anyone else come accross a copy of this and installed it?

    How does it run, is it stable....

    I will update this thread once i am scraped a machine to install it on

    might be interesting just to see how poor it is
    hope the graphics card requirements are less than the desktop version, noone is going to want to buy a big graphics card for a server.

    Re: Longhorn Server

    Got this running on a 1.5Ghz 2Gb laptop.

    Installed almost all the functions - AD, DNS, DHCP, IIS, File Serving, Printing, etc.

    Its pretty much rock solid as far as I've tested it - not added any workstations to it though.

    The administration a little different (can't compare it to vista as i haven't looked at that yet). Seems to carry on from the new File Management mmc v 3 in 2003 R2.

    All other the stuff from 2003 R2 is in there.

    The GPMC has tonnes of new stuff in it too.

    I am a MSFT Partner as well as a registered Beta Tester, and have been for about 4 years now, so I am starting to get onto many good programs, but don't worry a public build will appear eventually....

    I thought Partner status was for ISVs, IHVs and resellers.

    Re: Longhorn Server

    I do more work than just working for schools, if I just worked for a school I would not be able to afford to live! My car insurance is more than one months pay where I work

    So I do a lot of private work as well as I used to run my own business a few years back so I kept the status up etc.... But its worth it, I get the MSFT Action Pack subscription still for my personal evaluation use and its worth it as for my own use I would find Technet /+ too much really so that does the job. Also means from my own work I got contacts at MSFT who are great, and some good distys that I can pull a few strings with to get me good pricing for education and they don't mess me around as I know them well.

    Bittorrent is 'public' enough for me.
