    Microsoft is having a new release for all of its OS line-ups this year, from phones (Windows Phone 8) and PCs (Windows 8 / RT) to servers (Windows Server 2012).Traditionally the server OS has gone up for sale last, after the corresponding desktop/laptop OS has been available in retail for purchase. However this time, the server component is showing up first, for purchase in stores and as part of pre-built OEM servers. Windows 8, the client OS to complement the server, is still two months away from "GA" or General Availability to public. Enterprise IT might well see this version as an inflection point for servers, as much as Windows 2000 was against Windows NT 4. Among the changes are the addition of the Modern UI (formerly "Metro"), the enhanced PowerShell, the product re-segmentation, simplification of end-user license, and more. We shall only be talking about the release of the OS itself, in this article, and answer some Frequently Asked Questions.
