      On client Windows 8, it will come throught Windows Store. It is pretty likely this will be one of the ways of installing it in here as well. Independed iso-s will probably be available as well. Fresh installs after RTM are probably recomanded, because Windows 8.1 it said to have, as fresh instalations, only 4gb. This means that, even if WS2012 r2 will need more, it will be considerable less then WS2012 as we know it.

      Like I have said in another tread on this forum, I have subscribed to the preview version of Windows Server 2012 r2, when it will be available, and to the beta of the new SCEP version, I assume they will come in the same time. That will probably the only antivirus with support for a server version of Windows NT 6.3 .

      Did you ever beta test new SCEP version?

      microsoft security essentials will still work with windows server 2k12 r2 right ❓

      There is not MSE beta, as far as I know, to work with WS2012r2. There is a SCEP beta, featuring (most likely) the beta of the new Microsoft antimalware engine, found in the Windows Defender of Windows 8.1 preview as well.

      Well I did get some confirmation that there seems to be some sort of compositer or possibly driver interface issue on the 8.1 pro edition of NT 6.2 with NVIDIA video hardware, as yet nothing regarding AMD older ATI or Intel.

      Too early to tell but the performance differences (though quite small) between the Consumer OS, and the Server OS has always intrigued me; as well as the revelations that later follow as to just why this is.

      Hopefully this is just because it’s Beta, perhaps still incorporates some debug code, very high granularity logging and performance counters going full-on that makes the desktop version of NT 6.2 a little idiosyncratic.

      It works with 8.1 x64 that has the 6.3 kernel so if it works with Server 2012 then it should work with R2.

      I have been testing my upgrade from Windows Server 2012 to 2012 R2 and I see a great amount of performance improvement. Even the booting process is more quickly. Applications start more faster. I think this is a must have upgrade if you can get the 2012 R2 version. I get mine free from dreamspark because I am a college student 😉

      Works about the same from my perspective.

      I got Immunet 3.0 (ClamAV 0.98) installed alongside MalwareBytes PRO without a problem for security (temporary at this time). Immunet complained of some compatibility being questionable, but it worked.

      Spybot S&D 2 is a no go thanks to Microsoft and the slipshod Program Compatibility Assistant blocking it with a hard-lock. Safer-Networking has a patch, but Microsoft still has it totally blocked.

      Comodo IS is non-installable also at this time. I may test it with the Application Verifier later however.
