    Microsoft: Windows Server 8 will now be titled Windows Server 2012


    Microsoft has now announced the official product name for the next version of its Windows Server software series. In a press release, the company said the product, which has been previously referred to by its code name Windows Server 8, will now be titled Windows Server 2012. It's expected to be officially released sometime later this year, most likely in the same time frame as the release of Windows 8.

    Since 200 they call it with the year name, so it was normal. I wonder if Windows Server 2012 r2 will have more or less metro crap ? Sorry for the word, but i don't think peoples will run Servers OS on their phones or tablets.
