Default Microsoft plans to ship the first beta of Longhorn Server

Microsoft plans to ship the first beta of Longhorn Server shortly after Longhorn client Beta 1 reaches testers this summer, with all signs pointing to an August debut. Windows Server head Bob Muglia also said the company is considering a version of Longhorn Server designed for home use.

The revelations came in an online Web chat on Wednesday, in which the moderator asked participants to "please join us in the first part of August for a chat about Longhorn Server Beta 1." Microsoft Watch first reported the news, noting that it would be uncharacteristic for Microsoft to hold a chat before it releases the code.

During Wednesday's chat, Muglia took questions from users ranging from improvements slated for Longhorn Server to the future of Active Directory. In response to a query on whether Microsoft would deliver a version of Longhorn Server designed to manage multiple systems in a home environment, Muglia hinted such a SKU might be planned.

Well to begin with its a 64 bit based file system, and of course a couple other improvements.
