    I got the notification from VLS a few weeks back (think it was released at the start of the month). The two server rebuilds today have been straight Svr 08 SP2 builds as the combined slipstream is also on Technet and VLS. Seems a bit quicker on the same hardware - particularly the MMC consoles. Going to do an inplace upgrade on one of the other boxes later. Not tried the Vista SP2 upgrade yet - but its the same SP, so should be the same scenario I expect.
