    Came perfectly timed yesterday, i sat here looking at my WDS server thinking "damnit i need to rebuild this" so i've jumped in head first on server 2012 for WDS I'll probably regret it, but luckily it's for the least important server so it's a good learning chance

    I wasn't going to touch 2012, but proper support for virtualising domain controllers means it's now on my plans

    I'm sure I downloaded the full 2012 from MVLS about a week ago, even burnt it to DVD.

    There is an en-GB language pack, but you need to download the separate language pack ISO to install it.

    Code:
    TechNet: mu_windows_server_2012_language_pack_x64_dvd_917551.iso
    VLSC: SW_DVD5_NTRL_Win_Svr_Language_Pack_2012_64Bit_MultiLang_FPP_VL_OEM_X18-27741.ISO

    SBS is now Essentials I think I read somewhere?

    So if I want to use enterprise-esque features from now on (failover clustering etc) its Datacenter all the way now? or have they moved some of the eneteprise features into Standard?

    my understanding is the only difference between data center and standard is around visualization rights 2 guests with standard and unlimited with data center. otherwise standard would do everything else.
