Windows Server Insider Preview First Look

Back In June 2017, Microsoft announced that Windows Server 2016 will join the Windows Insider program like Windows 10.

The Windows Server Insider program will allow Microsoft to release more updates to Windows Server (Like Windows 10) and allow customers to add more features to applications and services running on Windows Server 2016.

Today, Microsoft announced the first Windows Server Insider build known as Build 16237.

The build Is 2.7 GB In size and I’m going to Install it on my Windows 10 1703 machine

To get started, I’m Installing it as a Virtual Machine using the Quick Create Hyper-V feature

The first surprise In the build Is that, It doesn’t come with a GUI Interface, Only Server Core

I have the say that the Installation took less than 2 minutes which Is Impressive
