Microsoft has released details of how Windows Server 2016 will be released and maintained, and as with Windows 10 it includes a "Windows as a service" model of frequent operating system updates.

Windows Server 2016 will be launched at the company's Ignite conference, which runs from September 26 to 30 in Atlanta, Georgia. As with the current release, there will be three editions: Datacenter, Standard and Essentials.

Several things are new, though. One is that Windows Server 2016 will be priced and licensed per core, rather than per physical processor.

Other details revealed, though you need to see the full from MS at: [blogs.technet.microsoft.com...] and [microsoft.com...]

No real deal breakers, just more "stuff" to deal with.
