Windows Server 2012: Dull and Great
Redmond columnist Don Jones is a big fan of Windows Server 2012. The only problem (and it's a problem for Microsoft, not Don) is that the OS is not terribly exciting. And it's not terribly new or flashy. It doesn't have a fundamentally new user interface that looked like an over-inflated smartphone.
Server 2012 is boring because what it does it kind of boring. And it just works, just like its predecessor, Jones argues. Not exactly marketing gold.
But there's a lot to the new server OS.
The thing it seems Jones loves best about Server 2012 is you can manage it almost entirely from PowerShell. And for a PowerShell fan/guru like Don, that is indeed great news.
Another cool thing? It's easier to manage servers remotely, he argues. And in these days where workers could be anywhere, that's a pretty big deal.
