Submission + - Windows Admins Need To Prepare for GUI-Less Server (redmondmag.com) 1

msmoriarty writes: We knew Windows Server 8 was going to be a departure for Microsoft, including an "optional" GUI, but in a blog post made earlier this week, the Windows Server team said that working without the GUI will be the "recommended" method, and is telling developers not to assume a GUI will be present. According to Windows consultant and author Don Jones, this is a big hint to Windows admins that they better get used to not having a GUI in future releases. From the article: "I'm well aware that many Windows admins out there aren't looking forward to a GUI-less server operating system from Microsoft...I'm sure Microsoft has, too.They're proceeding anyway.We have two choices: adapt or die."
