I haven't gotten to see it yet, but am curious about how it is to manage remotely and
what new challenges it will present to the person that has to troubleshoot its problems.

The new interface is different, but that was said about Windows XP when it was released
and had people looking for ways to make it look like its predecessor.  Vista was still another
change, not only in the way it looked, but in ways to manage it as well.  Then came Windows 7
and things were changed again.  Again, I am referring to how to manage it remotely.  The
length of time it takes for Microsoft to release SP1 for Windows 8 will tell if they are listening
to their user community.  Many are for, from what I've read, the new interface, but others
are staying it is not worth the effort to upgrade and they plan on staying with 7 or XP.

I'd like to take the Enterprise version out for a test drive (90 day download), but without
the ability to put it on several systems, then create scenarios to simulate managing a small
network, it is tough to do.  I don't think putting it on one system is going to allow for a fair
review.  At least not in the way I want to look at it.

How about you Redstar?  Have you gotten to take it for test drive yet?  If so, post what you
don't care about it and what you do like about it.

Have a laptop dual booting win 7 and win 8.

but not really using it, it's only for testing the compatibility of any software I write.


Thing about XP's interface, you could revert to classic (win2k) view from the teletubby look. (Which I always did)


With Win7 and Win8 you can't do that and each new iteration makes it harder to find things as far as an IT specialist is concerned.


For the average user it probably makes it easier as they are not interested in what is under the hood.

Guess it's like cars these days, the driver is less likely to look under the hood as there is less and less user serviceable parts.
