Windows InfoWorld's Doug Dineley and Brian Chee round up the best new features of Windows Server 8. 'If you're a large shop struggling to manage hundreds of Windows servers, Windows Server 8 should ease the job. If you're a small shop trying to squeeze high-end capability from a low-end budget, Windows Server 8 has plenty for you, too. With Windows Server 8, everything from server deployment to high availability becomes smoother and more automated.' From multiserver management, to friction-free server deployment, to flexible live migration, 'whatever grudge you may hold against Windows Server 2008, Windows Server 8 will almost certainly make amends.'

Metro Interface Sucks

I think the title says it all!

I've had Windows 8 Prev here in a VM for a few days, and I STILL can't figure out a simple way to shutdown - apparently no one will be doing that anymore...

There also appears to be NO WAY to disable the metro interface...

And the ribbon for Explorer just plain sucks dirty monkey scrotum. It isn't so bad when it is minimized (which, IMHO, should be the default).

I fear all this "dumbing down" of computers will result in people which are just as dumb. Technology should work to further man-kind, we should leave the weak minds behind, not cater to them!!
