Windows Server 2016 EVAL - First Thoughts & Observations

After downloading the official Windows Server 2016 Eval yesterday and spinning up a VM I was pleased to see what I had been hearing for a while that this version would indeed include support for containers:

Woo-hoo! I'll have to play with this some more soon. It should also be noted that Windows Server 2016 now uses PowerShell 5.1 which contains some important new features around JEA & DSC.

I'm excited to start learning. This version appears to have improved on the sweeping changes we saw with Server 2012 so there shouldn't be too much to relearn which is good. As I work with this new version I'll post more.
