Summary: Microsoft slowly but surely is fleshing out some more Windows 8 details of potential interest to IT admins and business users.
Last week, with the rollout of the Windows 8 Consumer Preview, Microsoft officials focused on the consumer features and applications for its next-generation Windows client. But on March 6 (at 10 am CET/4 am ET), the business features are slated to be in the limelight.
Microsoft plans to show off some of the business features in Windows 8 this week at the CeBIT show in Germany. Specifically, the Softies are planning to use Chief Operating Officer Kevin Turner’s keynote as another venue for demonstrating Microsoft’s coming Windows client.
Microsoft posted for download last week a business-focused version of its Windows 8 Consumer Preview guide — which seemed to indicate that Windows 8 on ARM (WOA) tablets won’t be enabled to join Active Directory domains.
