Windows Server 2012 Essentials released…

It’s finally here and it has a new name…

In the past there were different products called SBS Standard, SBS Essentials, Windows Home Server.
Microsoft has tried to combine all of these and release it as one product.

There are  mixed feelings roaming the internet but the fact is that our beloved Windows Home Server is gone. :-/
And no home user will ever pay 425$ for the Server Essentials version.

Here you can find the different editions.
There is a Server Essentials Forum to share information/ask questions.
More information on the Microsoft website.
You can download it here.

Below are a few screenshots of the new Dashboard; taken from a fresh install.
The existing version of AutoExit for WHS/SBSe can be installed and should work.
