Windows 8 Beta strikes again…

So while tooling around in PowerShell this morning in Windows Server 2012, I had to chuckle when I ran a get-help command and read through the text where it stated Windows Server “8” Beta. I suppose that even though this was released back in late September that Microsoft hasn’t had a chance to do an update of their help files.

And for anyone curious, yes, I did run an update-help prior to running the get-help cmdlet. Check it out 🙂

Windows 8 / Windows Server 2012 Update – Explorer Error

Always interesting when reading through the Download Center Updates that are available when something like this pops up:

Title:  Explorer.exe process may crash when you tap or click the desktop in Windows 8 or Windows Server 2012

Is it just me or that’s… “Bad”?

Granted if you dig into the text you’ll see that it’s targeted at a particular language, but still interesting to see something like this pop up.
