Server 2008 RC0…

Well, I’ve been geeking on Server 2008. What a great product with excellent functionality! I’m stoked about the future built-in virtualization, new terminal services functionality, and ease of build.

Today, I set up TS RemoteApps which allows you to RDP applications to the desktop. Very nifty how this works. Also, I’m in the process of installing RC0 on a Dual-Core 16GB Blade server. I want to kick the tires on Windows Server Virtualization (WSV) and the x64 version of 2008. I had installed it on my laptop, but I couldn’t get my wireless to work so I rebuilt it to Vista Ultimate.

Here’s some screen shots of RC0 and TS Apps…
