Windows Roadmap Article

I found this article to be a good summary of future Microsoft OS release plans. The key points I noted are:

  • Microsoft is adopting a "4 year release schedule for Windows Server then that would place Windows Server Longhorn in 2007 (4 years from Server 2003)"

  • "[W]e'll be seeing Windows Client Longhorn in 2006"

  • "Microsoft will release an update every 2 years after an initial major release which refreshes the Operating System with add-ons, security fixes and new features. The next planned update is for Windows Server 2003 which is due to be released in 2005 and currently code-named R2."
