.vhd is a great option as I currently have a Server 2008 R2 machine with Hyper-v role installed, makes life easy.
Anyone else giving it a try? Think I will also grab the .iso so I can play with the new Hyper-v features as well.
"Political correctness is a doctrine fostered by a delusional, illogical minority, and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end."
My thoughts are my own and are in no way representative of my employer.
Downloaded it and spun up both the GUI version and Core which seems to be their preferred install option. Seriously who actually uses core?
I spun them up as VMs, first impressions were not good at all, graphics drivers aren't compatible with the latest VMWare tools under vSphere 5, and now they have moved all the useful tools to obscure drop down menu's for no benefit to usability.
Seems like someone told the boys at MS to take 2K8 R2 and re-skin it to make it look like windows mobile 7/8 as surly that will make it seem more current.
The only improvement is the ability to manage other servers through a more unified dashboard, nothing which couldn't have been added to 2K8 R2 as a service pack.
I'm really not looking forward to using this server OS at all, simply no upgrade from what's currently out there.
