SBS 2008 will be out later this year- probably third quarter.  MS is still being a little cagy about the actual date, but they are ramping up their marketing efforts already so it'll be soon.  sbs 2003 R@ will follow the same life cycle that sbs 2003 does - so take that as End of support in 2013

>>> "The Link to MS was broken or I was having a local problem"

That's strange. I've printed and attached it as a PDF document to this comment.

Cheers for the points!
