Windows 8.1 (Blue) will be a free update

According to the official Windows blog Windows “Blue” will indeed be named Window 8.1 and that it will be free for current Windows 8 consumers through the Windows Store.

So through the Windows Store, that is interesting not Windows Update.

It seems logical that enterprises can use their WSUS or any other deployment method, so I assume it will be available as a stand alone download.

Update Rollups for Windows Server 2012 and Windows 8 are NOT cumulative

If you pay attention to the updates Microsoft rolls out each month or take note of what Windows Updates are on your Windows 8 PC or Windows Server 2012 Server, you may have seen some monthly rollup updates.

These update rollups are not cumulative updates. You do need to apply each of the monthly update rollups to get the fixes and enhancements from each month. Installing the February 2013 Update Rollup does not get you the January 2013 to October 2012 rollup updates. This is to say, these rollups are independent of each other. Searching on the KB number will discuss what each rollup is addressing that month. Note that these updates do not focus on a particular component as we have seen with previous cumulative or rollup type updates but are broader to Windows.

Windows Azure General Availability of Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS)

Now that Windows Azure Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) is general available, make sure you start to play with it. Like I said before, Windows Azure is now more fun for the IT Pro’s!

Besides that this site Bink.nu is running on Windows Azure for over 9 months now, I have been testing Windows Azure IaaS since the preview  launched last June:

  • Install a VM in minutes
  • Choose OSes from a Gallery, even Linux
  • Upload your own prepped VHD
  • Create a load balanced solution
  • Connect to your on premise network
  • Connect to on premise DNS
  • VM mobility

Now with the general availability even more features and options are live:

  • New VM Image Templates (including SQL Server, BizTalk Server, and SharePoint images)
  • New VM Sizes (including Larger Memory Machines)
  • New VM Prices ( reduced prices 21%-33% for IaaS and PaaS VMs)

Less than a year remaining until XP End of Support

Yesterday marked the day of the 1-year count down of when Microsoft softs supporting Windows XP.

In this blog post Stephen Rose provides some answers to help explain what the end of support is and what you need to do to move to a modern OS like Windows 7 or Windows 8.

Microsoft will end Extended Support on April 8, 2014. Why?

In 2002, Microsoft introduced its Support Lifecycle policy based on customer feedback to have more transparency and predictability of support for Microsoft products. Per this policy, Microsoft Business and Developer products – including Windows and Office products – receive a minimum of 10 years of support (five years Mainstream Support and five years Extended Support), at the supported service pack level. Windows XP SP3 and Office 2003 will go out of support on April 8, 2014. If your organization has not started the migration to a modern desktop, you are late.

Windows version Default product key
Windows 8 46V6N-VCBYR-KT9KT-6Y4YF-QGJYH

Windows 8 Professional N 4NX4X-C98R3-KBR22-MGBWC-D667X
Windows 8 Single Language (Emerging Markets) NH7GX-2BPDT-FDPBD-WD893-RJMQ4

Simply type the default product key into the answer file used to preinstall the version of Windows that your customer requested.

Example:

			<UserData>

The end user will be required to type the unique product key from the Certificate of Authenticity (COA) label when first booting Windows 8.
