R2 delayed by a few bad files

I knew a day or so that this was coming - R2 was delayed because a few of the core files were "old" versions and should have been updated.  As expected this will delay R2 being in the shops and at distributors.

As expected Susan B has blogged on this and I saw it at ZDNet.  The usual SBS Team are saying very little about it, as you would expect, but worth looking at http://seanda.blogspot.com/2006/07/r2-recalled.html.

So, still coming, just a wee bit delayed.   ho hum - better it is stopped now than when in the hands of customers!!

I already have an OEM version of R2 - planning to install on Monday. Is there a way to tell if I've got the bad version? Thanks

We have not released an updated version, so yet you have the "bad" version.  While I am running this myself and don't have any problems, there are obviously issues that need to be addressed.

I will ask to get guidance, but I suspect it might be "don't install it".

I presume the language is English - can you tell me if it is Standard or Premium you are installing?

thanks

David
