Default Next Microsoft Server OS

At one point I had Microsoft's OS cycles figured out fairly well, but that was a bit ago. Does anyone know what Microsoft's plans are for the next server OS release? Are they going to work on a modified Windows 2000 Server, or go back to a more specialized, NT system, or try to do something with Windows XP, or try something completely different? Is it supposed to come out next year, or in two years?

Thanks.

Why to reinvent the wheel all the time. Stick with the old good stuff.

"Xenix 2002 XP built on somebody's better technology" sounds great. Standard flying jail windows logo, it must work ...

Seriously, even dude with wild imagination like me, can't think of anything micro haven't tried yet

Well if Vee_Ess does take it offensively, i feel that it is all of our buisness here at NetSmog. SPAMI dont think that it is right for fellow NetSmog members to be putting down there own members. SPAMAll im saying is to be cool about it.....i know you are capable of doing so!

The next MS server OS will be Windows .NET Server. It is basically just Windows XP Server because it is based off the same platform, SDK Platform. I know for a fact that it is in the pipeline, and is now in their MSDN (MS Developer Network) phase, but I am not sure when it will be released. An educated guess would be around 6 months to a year, as that is usually how long it takes to get past the MSDN phase.

Sorry for the late response...I was tryin and still am to get to a site on msdn.microsoft.com that had all their beta's available, but I can't find it. If anyone knows, please post.

This doesn't make any sense. Windows XP has fewer network (and basically other) features then Win2000, so it would be downgrade to make server based on XP platform (which uses simplified NT kernel) instead of original W2K.
W2K had promising start but still not very popular in networking environment, it doesn't have all the reasons to upgrade from NT4/6sp so few businesses go for it (and that was the goal of W2K development). Just needs time, ~2yrs
