    Did you notice the Shutdown and Restart options in the 'Win X' menu.

    Have they replaced the Command Prompt with Powershell?

    I use the Command Prompt more than Powershell - so that makes little sense to me really

    PowerShell is better you can use any normal commands you use in cmd and also the PowerShell scripts, so you have the best of both worlds

    True, so is this the first steps to the Command Prompt being deprecated altogether?

    I meant "CMD.EXE" itself - and that PS and commands will all be in the same powershell.exe console
    One console to rule them all sorta thing

    for those of you that maybe don't have the infrastructure available to try out windows server 2012 R2 why don't you sign up for a Windows Azure 30 Day trial and test it out on their! ;-)

    It blows my mind that neither dsa.msc or the ADMC show photos that you have saved in AD at all still. Exchange 2013 does, outlook since 2010 does. Why doesn't AD? It'd make perfect sense.
