I was up at the October meeting of the Ottawa Windows Server User Group. Rick Claus did the presentation on Microsoft Small Business Server 2003 R2. He covered how small businesses could use it to provide access to the network resources for remote users and branch offices using the different tools in SBS. It was the warm up show for the I/O Tour in Ottawa today. I didn’t go to that, but it sounded like it would be good.
Some other things to note
- Virtual PC 2007 goes into Beta on October 11th. Rick says he is already using it and it works well on top of Windows Vista.
- Windows RC2 is coming up soon, I’ll place a link to the site.
- Office Beta 2 Technical refresh is out. (Only available through Technet Plus or MSDN). My friend Dave with the schoolboard tells me it works a lot better that Beta 2, basically better UI and more stable.
