We did a comprehensive review of Internet Explorer 8 Beta 2 when it was released back in August 2008. Not surprisingly, there is no major change since Beta 2.

At this years CES, Microsoft not only unveiled Windows 7 Beta to the public but also released the beta version of their next Server Operating System – Windows Server 2008 R2 (internally known as Windows 7 Server). Windows Server 2008 R2 will be the next version of the Windows Server operating system from Microsoft, building on the features and capabilities set of the current Windows Server 2008 release version.
