Ned here. Go there:

While you wait for the downloads, check out Delivering the Windows 8 Release Preview on the B8 blog to learn a few more things about Windows 8 from a non-enterprise standpoint. More Windows 8 here. More Windows Server 2012 here.

IT Pro content will trickle out; keep your eyes peeled on the Windows Server blog and elsewhere. And know this: we have everything documented to the nth degree and you will learn everything you need, at least after RTM, even if it harelips the governor.

See you then.

  • Thanks Slim Pickens!

    Now, where's that start button so I can shut this machine down.

  • That was a solid zinger. :-D

  • That's funny, the Server 2012 RC virtual machine was spinning up on my Hyper-V host when I came to check this blog and saw this post.  I for one really like the aesthetic.  The flat, sharp, minimalist GUI is a style that has always appealed to me.  And something I'm really looking forward to is being able to switch the GUI on and off.  I really like the Core installation.

  • Hi Ned... Thanks for pointing the links out. However, is it Windows 8 Server or Windows 2012?

  • Windows Server 2012.

  • Also, the VHD download for server is currently broken (at least for me and colleagues). Looking into it.

  • Yeah its broke for me too!

  • VHD should be working now.

  • Awesome news, thanks for the notification!  Now anyone have a way to get about 8 more hours in a day, so I can spend more time digging in and learning even more about DAC and all of the other goodness?  :)

  • RIP to the FISHY?

  • Yup, now it's flower power.

  • Microsoft Press Announcement: Tekzilla shows off some of the updates and explain why you should upgrade to Release Preview from Consumer preview if you're running Windows 8! [HD]
