Hi, all,

 

If you're a TechNet or MSDN subscriber, I have good news for you: in response to your requests, Windows Server 2012 R2 (and Windows 8.1) will be available from TechNet and MSDN today. Because we will continue to evaluate the bits with our partners and MVPs, there may be additional changes between today's release and GA. The previously announced GA date of October 18 has not changed.

Can't wait to hear from you with additional feedback about the release!

Best,
