  • The .mobi and .epub links do not work for me, perhaps those documents are not available yet. The .pdf link worked fine. Thank you for the book.

  • Same as Mathias - the only link that worked here is the .pdf

  • EPUB not working for me either, only PDF

  • Yep, I can only download the PDF, not the other two files.

    There are some nice, cool features in Server 2012. If you are reading this, get used to the Metro interface, it is not as bad as it looks!!! You can configure it really easily and set up all sorts of neat shortcuts. Plus you can search by typing directly onto the desktop instead of having to find the search entry box.

    You will also be surprised that the interface is designed for a 16x9 screen - the idea is that you won't be doing your work down by the stack any more. You will be doing it in a bright office, or anywhere you can login!!

  • Thank you Mitch Tulloch for the free book :)

  • Great offering and looking forward to reading it in depth.

  • Thanks for the free Ebook!
