Windows Server 8 codename
The official codename for the successor to Microsoft's Windows 7 Server operating system. While the Windows Server 8 codename was initially rumored to be the launch name used for the next generation server OS, Microsoft has since reported that the new server OS will be named Windows Server 2012. The Windows 8 codename is also being used for the desktop version of the operating system, as an official name for the desktop has not yet been announced.
The official release of the Windows Server 2012 operating system is expected to arrive in late 2012, and a release candidate of Windows Server "8" is currently available for download from Microsoft.
