Widely expected to be an announcement of a fresh Windows version, today Microsoft held an event that wasn’t available online. Not having this event streamed online was a disappointment. I have the sense that Microsoft was aware of the Apple iPhone event debacle and decided to forgo the pain (if the stream didn’t work). In that way, it’s a good move.
Microsoft has offered a preview of WIndows Server 2012 R2; here’s how to get it, and what I’m interested in.
Of the biggest previews tomorrow, we’ll likely see the big “Blue” Windows 8.1 preview released for us to test. Late yesterday and today, however, Microsoft made a few other packages available for download and preview.
