Goodbye "Longhorn" it’s been nice to know you

We have announced at Winhec the name for longhorn server. It’s was tough to come up with a name which embodied all the facets of the new product. We worked hard with agencies and focus groups. And finally we’ve come up with a name that really captures the essence of the product. And the name is … Windows Server 2008.

Like chicago, Tahoe, Catapult, Stinger, Whistler and my favourite Wolverine, Longhorn is a name we now forget.
