Well…this just came down the pike via the Microsoft TechNet newsletter.
September 4, 2012 – Windows Server has reached its release-to-manufacturing (RTM) milestone. Save the date and join us for an online launch event where our executives, engineers, customers, and partners will share more about how Windows Server 2012 can help organizations of all sizes realize the benefits of the cloud OS.
Now before you start going crazy, making plans and buying party hats…this is the release to manufacturer date. That means you’ll be able to evaluate and purchase starting on that date. What I’d recommend is if you’ve not been a part of the evaluation process already, to do so starting on that date and see what it’s all about.
Microsoft and the Cloud. Some of you may cheer, others jeer, others be aghast in horror of change…but change it has and it looks to be a good change. 🙂
(yea I’m excited…sue me. 😉 )
