Windows Server “Next” delayed until 2016
January 31, 2015 Leave a comment
Microsoft has delayed the release of the server version of Windows 10 [probably Windows Server 2016] until sometime in the spring of 2016. No official reason has been given as yet.
Some have guessed a number of reasons which may be a valid reason including:
- Extend the gap between the end of support for Windows Server 2003 and the release date of the new server version [push Windows Server 2003 to upgrade to Windows Server 2012 R2].
- Too many bugs and issues still haven’t been resolved on the server side.
- Microsoft’s ongoing strategy to try to convince more users to move to the cloud, since Microsoft is continuing with its mission to roll out new features for the cloud first.
- A new server release just 2 years since Windows Server 2012 R2 is too fast.
