As I sit in the MCT Summit this week I am blown away by what’s coming down the pipe. These are the things that I will be focusing on in the next little while:
Of course I have been talking about Hyper-V for over a year now… and System Center Virtual Machine Manager is the cat’s meow. Hyper-V version 2 is now in beta, and a lot of the improvements are going to blow you away. More on that soon.
Windows Server 2008 R2
I was not a fan of Windows NT 4 Server, but have really liked each release of Server since. The improvement curve will continue upwards in Server 2008 R2… PowerShell is getting better, but the Active Directory Recycle Bin is going to be a real life saver for a lot of people… I’ve never actually erased an entire Organizational Unit by accident, but I know people who have… this is going to be nice!
I have been using Windows Vista since before it was called Vista. I am one of those people who loves it, and have never looked back. I know there are a lot of people out there who disagree with me, and for those of you who are waiting with bated breath for the new version, the wait will not be long now. Stay tuned!
More and Better
I wish I could tell you right now about everything we are discussing this week, but the reality is I am trying to listen to Joey Snow right now as I type… pretty tough to do both. Besides, there’s no NDA for this week so we’re not actually learning anything NEW and unreleased. That’s going to wait until next month… but believe me, there’s a lot coming out from Microsoft this year that will make us all happier… let’s talk more about that soon!
