Windows Server 2012 Released to Manufacturing

Today is a huge day because Windows Server 2012 and Windows 8 both released to manufacturing. I have been playing with both for a long time, and of course I love Windows PowerShell 3.0 which is built in to both products. The new CIM cmdlets, the additional cmdlets for managing nearly everything make using Windows PowerShell a dream. Both Windows 8 and Windows Server 2012 will be up on MSDN and on TechNet for subscribers soon. See the Windows 8 blog and the Windows Server blog for details.

Both new products will play a prominent role in the upcoming PowerShell Saturday’s in Charlotte and in Atlanta.

Stay tuned as I begin to explore the goodness exposed by Windows PowerShell 3.0 in our latest operating systems.

    Congrats to the WS2012 Team… Only took IIS 6 years longer than the Apache HTTPD Project to add SNI 😉

    Good job with Windows Server 2012 and PS 3, although there are still a few stragglers that I have found do not have cmdlets. Leap years over where we were with W2K8 R2, though …
