Windows "Windows Server 2012 probably won't have the adoption lag in the enterprise that Windows 8 is bound to face. That's because, aside from the Metro GUI, Server 2012's biggest changes are in substance rather than style, building upon what the company delivered with Windows Server 2008 Release 2 three years ago. In particular, Server 2012 takes two management features Server 2008 R2 admins will be familiar with - Server Manager and PowerShell - and expands on them considerably."

One of the changes with v3 is that modules are now loaded on-demand. You can enumerate cmdlets for all available modules without actually loading the module into the session. They are only loaded when one of the cmdlets they contain is called.
