Windows Server 2012 Essentials Essentially Done

You'd think Windows Server 2012 Essentials would be completely done. After all, its big brother (regular old Windows Server 2012) has already been released to manufacturing, which means it's in the bag.

Essentials is almost there, having just gained release candidate status. That means it's almost ready for manufacturing but needs a few more eyeballs to make dead sure.

Essentials is made for shops with up to 25 clients, and is looking to make it fully out the gate this year.

If your shop grows, you can upgrade to Windows Server 2012 Foundation which handles 50 more users.

Essentials is essentially the new version of Windows Small Business Server. Have you used that, and if so, what do you think? Share your experiences at dbarney@redmondmag.com.
