14.1 Release History

 <  Day Day Up  >  

Originally scheduled for release in 2001, Windows 2003 Server was delayed several times, mostly for "security reasons" (according to Microsoft). Consider the following timeline of the Windows Server pre-release history:

  • Original codename : Whistler

  • Original expected release: late 2001

  • Original release candidate name : Windows 2002 Server

  • Trustworthy Computing Initiative release rollback: mid-2002

  • Final release candidate name: Windows .NET Server

  • Updated release date: mid-2003 (over two years of beta testing)

  • Last-minute name change: Windows 2003 Server

Even before its release, Windows 2003 Server was plagued with a long history of insecurity, uncertainty, and confusion.
