Windows 8.1 and Windows Server 2012 R2 available

Hi All,

today Microsoft released the ISO for both Windows 8.1 and Windows Server 2012 R2 for MSDN and TechNet subscriptions.

I’ve already downloaded my and i’m creating a bootable Windows 8.1 iso to upgrade my surface pro.

My server will shortly be upgraded to R2 as well…

Seems that today will be a long night 🙂

ps. note that Windows 8.1 and Windows Server 2012 R2 are not currently supported in a production environment and System Center 2012 Configuration Manager R2 is not RTM, it means that you cannot deploy Windows 8.1 with SCCM 2012 SP1 or R2 Preview
