Just in case you weren’t paying attention this morning, the Preview (Beta) of Windows Server 2012 R2 and System Center 2012 R2 are now available for download and testing!
If you have a TechNet or MSDN Subscription, you are more than welcome to download from your subscriber site like I did earlier this morning – only took 20 minutes and 7 seconds to download the Windows Server 2012 R2 Datacenter Preview!
