    Windows Server 2012 goes live

    Windows Server 2012 has gone live as of 8 AM Pacific Time (GMT - 7) today.

    I haven't seen it yet on TechNet but I imagine it will show up soon.

    (Disclaimer: I do not work for Microsoft or a Microsoft reseller. I speak only as a consumer / end-user. Thank you.)

    I feel like someone needs to say,"Gentlemen, start your servers."

    Hi downloaders.

    Have they fixed the flash player problem yet -- I could never get any video stuff using flash on IE 10 to play in Windows 2012 server but sound worked just fine. (Using the previous RTM - TechNet version -- not a Torrent),

    All I got for example say using the BBC web site was the sound (worked perfectly) but the video remained as either a grey or black box --whatever settings I made in IE10 on Windows server 2012.

    I'm getting a spinning green circle followed by an error at the present time from MSDN with this download. The other products seem ok.

    Mine came down with no problems at all, I did switch to IE for the download though as technet always seems to screw up my downloads in FF.

    Yeah, I always use IE for my MSDN downloads. We also use Microsoft Dynamics at work as a CRM. Those are the only 2 things that I use IE for.
