  1. Dear Yousuf,

    I am preparing for MCSA 2012. Some documentation shows that there is no Enterprise edition in Windows 2012 Server. Is it true?

    Also in the Microsoft Windows 2012 evaluation ISO download web page, they are saying only Standard and Datacenter editions are available for trial.

    Please comment.

    Thanks for this wonderful blog,

    Chennai
