Today's the BIG DAY!  Launch Day is finally here! The 2008 Launch Wave in Los Angeles kicks off the release of a host of exciting new products including Windows Server 2008, Visual Studio 2008, and SQL Server 2008.  Over the last twenty-six days, we've focused on Windows Server 2008 in preparation for today.  However, that's not the end of our blogging on Windows Server 2008 by any means - so don't fret!  However, today's post has a couple of different purposes.  First, we wanted to provide some important links and resources for Windows Server 2008.  So let's do that:





Something else that we are looking for is your feedback on the AskPerf blog:




  • What did you think about our Windows Server 2008 Launch Series?


  • What do you think about the AskPerf blog in general?


  • What sorts of topics would you be interested in seeing on AskPerf?



You can leave your feedback as a comment, or send us feedback via the Email link in the navigation pane on the right.



We'll be getting back to our regular posting schedule (Tuesdays & Fridays) next week.  Until then ...
