Microsoft is recalling -- primarily from its OEM and system builder partners – the Windows Small Business Server R2 bits the company released in mid-July, Microsoft officials said on July 28. Microsoft is recalling approximately 3,000 SKUs that included old code modules. As a result, general availability of SBS 2003 R2 will now be September 2006, rather than early August. Microsoft said relatively few customers will be affected by the recall, other than a few beta customers and early adopters. As a result of the gaffe, the Windows Server team intends to perform its code audits earlier in the development and test process, going forward, officials said.
