Hi Experts,
            I'm just wanting to find out if SBS 2008 R2 has been released yet? I can't really find any information or a expected release date. Can any one shed some light?

At the moment, there is "no such thing".

SBS 2008 RTM is the current level the product is at.

Nothing yet. Traditionally, SBS vNext follows on the heels of the current Windows Server release. So, we can expect one at some point, but the what/where/when is unknown at this point.

If you are asking due to licensing considerations, get yourself an Open Value Agreement with the three year spread payment option. It will more than likely allow for a free upgrade when the new version

I'm asking cause I have a number of customers that I need to install servers for and I'd rather wait and put in r2 (if it's not too log) than vanilla SBS 2008. Thanks for you help though.
