    8.1 Release date announced

    Just got an email from Microsoft TechNet letting us all know that the 8.1 update will be rolled out as of October the 18th. And (joy of joys for @SYNACK) the distribution begins in New Zealand

    Mark your calendars for Windows 8.1!

    Server 2012 R2 is out at the same time

    DFSR users might want to consider a move once it's released - there have been some MAJOR improvements with 2012 R2: DFS Replication in Windows Server 2012 R2: Revenge of the Sync - The Storage Team at Microsoft - File Cabinet Blog - Site Home - TechNet Blogs

    Woo... Been considering upping our 2008R2 servers to 2012 before the kids start back this year. Think the DFS improvements alone may well make it worth waiting. That would coincide rather nicely with October half term
