    Been using the beta for a while and downloaded the final early yesterday.

    While its a great os and the new feature set is good, the "metro" interface is totally pointless on a server that and the fact you have to find where they have hidden anything in server manager is a joke.

    Still I will be running it on my dev machine and then using the remote admin tools like I usually do.
    The long term plan we have is to replace our DC with it and also use it to eventually replace our vmware installation with hyper-v.

    We tend to be bleeding edge and run the latest on everything, for no other reason than because we can, a little gun ho but we like a challenge. :Aghast:

    That is a bold move to go to hyper v from VMware, going to be rolling out VMware farm on Cisco UCS soon and can't wait to be part of stateless computing.

    Well as we needed a new san we took the opportunity to get a faster san with 3 times the space and move from a 4gb backbone to 10gb backbone and the last stage is to move to hyperv through a combination of disk2vhd and where possible start from scratch and consolidate servers.

    So now we have over 30tb of space and plenty of throughput
