Of course with as many cpu’s as are shown, these would be features used for Server Admins.

It does however show how much Microsoft is thinking about changes in Windows 8 that will add value not only to the customer but to the Enterprise as well.

    how do us developer/testers get these new features.  Obviously if they are showing them and there are some blogs out there advertising availability of internal builds with new features, must be a way that we can get Microsoft to update us when these new features or apps or whatever are released!!

    Anyone know of a way to tell windows update to get ALL the new (beta) code??
