With all the rapid-fire new product announcements coming out of Microsoft these days, its tough even as an employee to keep up.  With Windows Server 2012, Windows 8, Outlook.com and The Office Preview being announced in the last few days, it’s an overwhelming amount of information to digest.  Windows Server 2012 alone has a significant amount of cool new updates that I’m starting to investigate and I hope you do too.  To download a copy of Windows Server 2012 RC, click here.

In the meantime, my good friend and former Unified Communications colleague Sam Cavaliere did a great blog post on a Lync 2013 First Look and how it compares to Lync 2010.  Sam has lots of passion for UC and tons of technical knowledge, so  I encourage you to check it out at https://scavali.wordpress.com/2012/07/31/lync-2013-clientfirst-look/ 

Enjoy!
