    the beta2 is already out:

    for the rest, I found this info:
    At the Microsoft? Worldwide Partner Conference today, Microsoft Chief Operating Officer Kevin Turner announced that Windows Server? 2008, Visual Studio? 2008 and Microsoft SQL Server? 2008 will launch together at an event in Los Angeles on Feb. 27, 2008, kicking off hundreds of launch events around the world.

    Hi abrusko;

    Seeming that the announcement was only officially made July 10 of this year that date has not changed yet. Go to this Microsoft link to read the announcement.
