Microsoft Confirms Windows Server 2012 – Launching This Year

 

Posted on Everything Microsoft - Latest Microsoft News, Guides, Reviews & Themes

While Microsoft announced the different editions of Windows 8 that will be available today, they also confirmed that Windows Server 8 will now be called “Windows Server 2012″ and have committed to launching it by the end of this year.

At Microsofts’ Management Summit, Corporate Vice President Brad Anderson spoke to around 5,000 IT professionals about the opportunities provided by Microsoft to deliver fast and reliable services with cloud computing. He announced Microsoft System Center 2012 which is now available for purchase. It allows users to set up their own secure private cloud network.

In conjunction with this, he also announced that Windows Server 2012 is a “fully cloud optimised OS” that will integrate very well with cloud computing. He claimed that “nothing Microsoft has ever done has ever been as ambitious” as the features that have been incorporated into Windows Server 2012.

Microsoft released Windows Server 2012 back in March, around the same time as the Windows 8 Consumer Preview was released to the public. Of course, there hasn’t been half as much coverage of Windows Server 2012 because as we all know, the corporate side of things is never as glamours as the consumer side.

Since Microsoft are expected to release Windows 8 this year, and now they’ve gone and promised that Windows Server 2012 will also be released this year, I can only assume that they will be releasing them around the same time. Of course Windows 8 will be launched to a massive marketing campaign, where as Windows Server 2012 will be a small little side note for the corporate scene to pick up on.

Apple will disconnect ‘obsolete’ first-gen Apple TV from iTunes in May

Apple has announced today it will drop iTunes support for some older devices from May 25. This includes the first generation Apple TV, and also any PC running Windows XP or Vista. The company is introducing new security changes which will prevent those devices from using the latest version of iTunes.
Apple says that the original Apple TV is an "obsolete Apple product" and will not be updated to support security changes. Only those with the second generation of Apple TV or later will be able to access the iTunes store.
Windows XP or Vista users won't be able to use the latest version of iTunes, but older Windows computers can still use previous versions without support from Apple. Those who do so, however, won't be able to make new purchases or re-download previous purchases on that computer. If you're on on XP or Vista, you'll need to upgrade to Windows 7 or later to continue using iTunes normally.
The writing was already on the wall for these devices: Wi…

Windows 10: Microsoft retires HomeGroup

Microsoft plans to remove the HomeGroup functionality from its Windows 10 operating system. The company made the first step towards that goal in the most recent Insider Preview version of Windows 10 as it disabled it in that build.
In "a note about HomeGroup" in the release announcement of the Windows 10 Insider Build, Microsoft confirms that HomeGroup will be retired.
The company introduced HomeGroup in Windows 7 as a new option for home users to access printers, files, and media in home networks. The core idea was to assign all devices to a single HomeGroup to share access to files and printers between all devices.
It is unclear how popular the feature was and is. It is clear however that it was never the only option that Windows users had in this regard, and it was not the best either for certain use cases. You could not add Mac OS X or Linux devices to a HomeGroup for instance.
