Windows

I'm incredibly excited that this morning at our Ignite conference in Atlanta we launched the newest release of our server operating system - Windows Server 2016! Now that we're ready to share it with the world, I want to take a moment to thank our customers who helped shape this exciting release. Windows Server 2016 is jam-packed with innovation and customer response has been overwhelming, with more than half a million devices running our final Technical Preview which we released five months ago. These customers range from large global enterprises to private cloud hosters to organizations of every size from every corner of the globe.

I don't get it. Why do they put a tablet UI on a server. And if it like 2012. Lets put that power off button next to the search. And have the icons looks similar.

Nobody understood that. It was just a bad consequence of server and client sharing the same core AND UI. Just like 8.1 it was mostly fixed in 2012R2 but I still dislike the new server manager.
Then again, I mostly interact with all my servers from 1 central management server and the other servers are GUI-less core versions (smaller, lighter, less patching)
