As the title of this post suggests, today we’re discussing a couple of the little things that make your experience so much better when using Windows Server 2012 and Windows 8. For example, the Task manager…
“Hold on.. the Task Manager has been the same for.. wow, I don’t even remember how many versions of Windows.”
Very true. And we’ve come to take it for granted. But it’s an old friend whose time has come to retire. Have you ever seen, for example, what the page of CPUs looks like in the old task manager when you’re running 32 CPUs on a single server?
“No.. I haven’t."
Well.. here you go…
And 32 isn’t nearly the capacity of what a virtual machine can have (64) or even a physical server (640). That’s a lot of processors.. and the old interface just doesn’t cut it.
In today’s installment of our “31 Days of our Favorite Things”, Keith Mayer will walk you through the new Task Manager, and perhaps a few other “UI Goodies”.
