Some days ago, I mentioned that there are rumors that Windows Server 2008 and Vista SP1 might come out on January 16th. Well, as it turned out now, those were nothing other than rumors, even though they were spread by usually well-informed sources. InfoWeek reports that the original time schedule is still valid. That is, Windows Server 2008 will probably be released at the end of February.

I find it a bit strange that false release dates about Microsoft products are published, often. Usually, the authors claim to have this information from Microsoft insiders. Are they just inventing those release dates or are even Microsoft employees sometimes confused about them? The fact that McClaws, a Microsoft employee, mentioned the false ship date in his blog, is an indication for the latter. When he removed this post, I already suspected that it was just a hoax.
Since Service Pack 1 for Vista will probably be released together with Windows Server 2008, I suppose, it will also be available only at the end of February. I think there is a fair chance that Windows XP SP3 will come out around the same time.
