Last week Microsoft said that Windows .Net Server, the successor to its Windows 2000 Server operating system, will not ship during the first half of 2002. Microsoft expects to issue the first Release Candidate (RC) this summer, while the release to manufacturing (RTM) should come later in the second half of 2002. This is the second delay for .Net Server, which Microsoft had originally projected to deliver during the second half of last year, but last April it pushed back the release until early 2002.
According to sources the delay is due to Microsoft's Trustworthy Computing initiative. This delay will most likely mean that a final product won't be available this year.
Analysts where expecting the delay, after Microsoft announced its Trustworthy Computing initiative, and see this delay as a wise move.
