Tried out R2 today. Since R2 is 64 bit only it had to wait until I had finally got myself a 64 bit laptop and installed Windows 2008 and HyperV. The installation went well, was the way it should be without the old complexity that a CS2009 installation must have CS2007 installed. (That said, I didn 't find any migration options.) Was a little puzzled that the IIS 7 still had to have IIS 6 compability installed, surely we can make a clean break here. Haven't tried the new Business toolbar yet, that is next on my list. The broker still can't do authentication so the dream of a true CS application server must wait a little longer.
