    IIS7 chosen as the first "Highlighted Feature" of Windows Server "Longhorn"

    The Windows Server team has chosen IIS7 as the first highlighted feature of the new Server OS, and updated the Longhorn Server home page with more information.  From their page:

    One of the most exciting new technologies delivered in Windows Server code name “Longhorn” Beta 2 is Microsoft’s latest Web server, Internet Information Services 7.0 (IIS7). IIS7 is really more than just a Web server—it is a security-enhanced, easy-to-manage platform for developing and reliably hosting Web applications and services. IIS7 is also the backbone that supports and unifies the next generation of Windows Web platform technologies, including ASP.NET 2.0, Windows Communication Foundation Web services, and Windows SharePoint Services.
