Microsoft offers preview of next Windows Server release

Microsoft releases interim build of Windows Server 2003, R2.

Microsoft made available yet another in a seemingly endless stream of interim product updates with the release of Windows Server 2003 Release Candidate Zero (RC0).

The software is a preview of technology that will be included in Release Candidate 2 (R2) of the server operating system, which is expected to be available before the end of the year, according to Microsoft.

Windows Server 2003 RC0 is available for evaluation at http://www.microsoft.com/windowsserver2003/r2/default.mspx. The release highlights advanced identity and access management features that will be available in the full R2 release, according to Microsoft's Web site.

Windows Server 2003 R2 also promises better scale and performance, as well as new branch-management capabilities, Unix interoperability, and enhanced worker productivity through Microsoft Windows SharePoint Services, according to Microsoft.

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
