As this year comes to an end I’d like to draw your attention to Microsoft’s new Top Support Solutions blog on TechNet. It was created this as part of their continuous efforts to keep the various technical communities informed about the most relevant answers to the top questions or issues experienced with their products. They identify these top issues by analyzing the question in their forums and their other support channels.
So if you need to find answers for your self or your customers go take a look at the "Top Solutions Content" blog. Changes are you’ll find valuable information about the Microsoft top support solutions for several of their popular products in Server and Tools. It might save you and your clients or manager a lot of time, effort and money. It’s also a great resource to make your colleagues, community, user group or clients aware of.
The Windows 8.1 (Pro) and Windows Server 2012 R2 RTM builds are available right now to the IT Pro & Developers communities via MSDN and TechNet subscriptions. Windows 8.1 RTM Enterprise edition will be available later this month.
Microsoft has decided to get the bits into our hands earlier due to our feedback that we need them to prepare for roll outs & test applications. This is great news and I’m happy Microsoft acted on the feedback they got from us.
So I’m already downloading …
So it seems the next weeks will get even busier than we had bargained for. Happy testing and remember, we weren’t born to follow

With the academic year in full swing and no lack of material we need to learn and study Microsoft is giving you a helping hand by providing a huge pool of resources. There’s TechNet, Evaluation software but also the Microsoft Virtual Academy.
To reward you for your hard work you get a cinema ticket to go relax at the movies. Click on the banner for more information on this.
The nice thing about the Microsoft Virtual Academy that you can do study the modules at your own pace and at your own moment of choosing. Combine this with TechNet Virtual labs and you have a lot of resources at your finger tips to learn even more even if you don’t have the room or resources to build a (home) lab.
If all that technology left you wanting to get some hands on with Windows Server 2012 you can also register for an IT Camp. There should be some more of them coming I’ve read on the site. With Mike Reseler (@MikeResseler) & Arlindo Alves@aralves) delivering those IT Camps you’ll be in good hands. Happy studying and have fun at the movies
