    Windows 8 Server (Server 2012)

    Whilst we are (almost) all paying rapt attention to the going's on in the W8 desktop/tablet world, it seems we have let the development of Windows 8 Server slip us by. Supposedly due sometime next year it's about time I felt we should mention it a bit more, so, to wet our collective whistle's here are a few links for you:

    Microsoft talks Windows Server 8 - Microsoft
    Windows 8 Server Milestone 3 (build 7959) leaked | ZDNet
    Windows 8 Server Will Support Exclusively 64-Bit (x64) CPUs - Softpedia


    And there is still speculation about W8's release date with some saying it will be 2012 and some early 2013, however the server version looks set for a release sometime next year.

    Yeh its a pity W8 wont be x64 only but at least W7 x64 is proving how stable and nice x64 is now as well as forcing proper drivers to be made.

    Agreem Windows 7 x64 is very stable i have not had any issues with it so i trust Windows 8 x64 will just be as good and better! (drivers are on top of my list as things windows 7/8 is great for!)
