Windows Server 8 Beta

Also, for those that are interested, Windows Server 8 beta has also been released. This is mainly for the IT professionals and geeks that have a server at home (guilty). It is also still a beta, so fair warning that there is no upgrade path to the final version. Don’t put it into any production server!

Windows Server is the leading server operating system that powers many of the worlds’ largest datacenters, enables small businesses around the world, and delivers value to organizations of all sizes in between. Building on this legacy, Windows Server "8" delivers hundreds of new features and enhancements for transforming virtualization and cloud computing to help you reduce IT costs and deliver more business value. Within Windows Server "8" you will find exciting innovations in areas of virtualization, networking, storage, user experience, and a transition to Windows PowerShell® to take scripting to a whole new level.
