Microsoft – RTM versions of Windows 8.1 and Windows Server 2012 R2 now available for MSDN and Technet subscribers

Even though it seemed for a while that MSDN and Technet subscribers would not get early access to the latest Windows versions, Microsoft decided to listen to customer feedback and reconsidered.

As a result, they just made the RTM versions of Windows 8.1 and Windows Server 2012 R2 available for MSDN and Technet subscribers. General availability for both Windows 8.1 and Windows Server 2012 R2 is still October 18. For the official statement, read this blog post.

Personally I’m very stoked about Server 2012 R2 and I’m already running the preview version. I especially love the improvements on Hyper-V and de-duplication. For more information about new and improved functionality, take a look at the free e-book : Introducing Windows Server 2012 R2 Preview Release.

Personal Development – self improvement books

Like many other people I’m continuously looking to improve. For me this includes, but is not limited to:

  • My technical skills as an ICT professional.
  • The balance between work and personal life.
  • Health and happiness.
  • Soft skills.

The last three categories are purposely very broad. Because of this, there are many books available that can help you improve. The books I’ve read or plan to read can be found on my website http://bjornhouben-web.sharepoint.com/Lists/Books. I hope it might inspire you to read some of them.

PS: Besides the books, there are also great online resources you might want to look into. I personally really like Seth Godin’s blog.

Should you know of any other great resources, please leave a comment.

Windows 8 – Free e-book “Windows 8 for Dummies, Dell Pocket Edition”

Through a colleague of mine, Gabrie van Zanten (Gabes Virtual World) I heard that there was another free e-book for Windows 8 available called “Windows 8 for Dummies, Dell Pocket Edition” and I wanted to share this with you.

I’ve browsed a bit in this e-book and it looks like it’s a really good read for people who have not much experience with (Windows 8) computers. It covers the basics, but also contains many practical tips for common home users.

If you want to upgrade to Windows 8, take advantage of the limited time cheap upgrade offer. Also if you want to know more about Windows 8, check some of my other blog posts covering Windows 8.
