Nope.  Looks like it will be Windows server 2012 and Windows 8 in 2012.

I don't understand what you ment 'on it's way' angellll. Must be because I can't catch all the English language phrases.

Anyway, Windows Server 2008 R2 is available and was released at almost the same time as Windows 7.

I don't think we will see a new Server OS in the next 2 years. I presume that new server OS from Microsoft will be available in beta stage next year.

Windows Server 2008 R2 came out in October 2009 which is still quite recent.
The only other product with a estimated delivery date is Windows 8 which sometime in 2012. But it is not a server edition. I would estimate at least 2012/2013 for the next server edition.
