Yesterday, IT pros learned that the Windows 8 Release Preview (aka the release candidate), would be released in the first week of June 2012. Here’s the announcement from Microsoft’s official Windows 8 Twitter account:

Now word comes that the release candidate for Windows Server 2012 – formerly known as Windows Server 8 – will be delivered “in the same timeframe,” according to a company blog post. This timing would keep it on track for a general release this year.

It also means that Windows Server 2012 will be an even hotter topic at Microsoft’s TechEd North America conference, to be held June 11-14 in Orlando. The keynote speakers for the event were announced last week, and include Satya Nadella, the president of Microsoft’s Server and Tools Business.
