Windows Server 2008 R2 is Here

Windows Server 2008 R2 is finally here, and it’s packed full of goodies.  The first thing I noticed was the similarity with Windows 7, the tool bar is designed and operated the same as in Windows 7.  I am very excited about the x64 bit platform, I just setup a New Print Server and even though one of our printers does not have a x64 bit driver the system still accepted the x86 bit driver.  Which is awesome!  Good job Microsoft I am looking forward to the other features that are in this Server OS.  I do plan on working with the new Hyper-V, one thing I am concerned about is the compatibility with Server 2008 (Non-R2).  I tested the beta of R2 and the Virtual Machines were not compatible for R2, I am going to test this out in the near future and see if there is a upgrade path I can take.  Look back for more updates.
