      In addition to the Windows 8 Consumer Preview, Microsoft has opened access to the download Windows Server “8” Beta… As far as development progress goes it looks like the new Server platform is still in the ‘tick‘ phase where the Consumer OS has moved into ‘tock‘ as the Server OS offers none of the new Metro or Desktop UI features, components or sub-systems (unconfirmed) but does have new technology like the ReFS file system, performance improvements for for Hyper-V virtual machines, and a Metro-Style Remote Desktop app (which would seem to contraindicate the rumor that the Metro and the “8” Desktop are not included at this time). If someone gives it a whirl before I do be sure and post what ya discover!
