System Center 2012 Service Pack Nears

System Center 2012 isn't all that old, but is already about to get its first Service Pack. System Center 2012 Service Pack 1 is what they call "release-to-manufacturing (RTM)." That means it's finished and sent off to the folks that package it for broad distribution. That used to mean burning it onto floppies, CD or DVDs. Now it mostly means setting it up on servers so it can be downloaded.

Being RTM doesn't mean it's instantaneously available -- the service pack won't be available to the general customer base 'til next month.

And while it is technically done, Microsoft isn't exactly opening the kimono on this thing. We have to read the tea leaves and old MS blog post to discern that this baby is all about.

Here's the one thing we know: It will support Windows 8 and Windows Server 2012.
