Download the beta release of Windows Server 2012 Essentials today!

Hi, I’m Joe Nalewabau, Group Program Manager on the Windows Server Essentials team, and today I’m excited to introduce the beta for Windows Server 2012 Essentials (Essentials 2012).

We announced the beta on the Windows Server blog and in that post I explained some of the engineering principles we used when planning the product.

Over the next few weeks we will use this blog to drill into specific areas of Essentials 2012. There is a lot to explore and we look forward to getting your feedback.

We have a list of blog posts being worked on but if there are specific areas you would like us to address please leave a comment and we’ll use this to help prioritize posts.
