Installing and Introducing Windows Server 2012 Roles/Features in a 210 sec screencast

Windows Server 2012 developer preview is available to MSDN subscribers, so I felt that I should download it, install it in a VM and have a look at the available roles and features as well as the new interface. The screencast shows the installation, new Server Manager console, new Task Manager and the Windows Server 2012 Start Menu.


Seems to be the biggest revision to the Server UI since the change from NT 3.51 to NT 4!
