    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.

    Well I can tell you something. Lee Every little bit helps when you are trying to get familiar with a next new version especially when it promises to be quite a bit different!

    Besides the desktop side of things I grabbed a few snaps of the repair options while booted live and those are also seeing a new look as well. You'll excuse a slight blurryness however until I can get a chance to replace those attached here for a quick look.

    The Preview does seem a bit OEM orientated with the "reset" options similar to either an upgrade to repair install or full clean install as well as additional screens for the System Restore, restoring a full system image, a new look for the Startup repair tool, and the command prompt options.
