To get the absolute best performance from your file server, you can set the server to the "High Performance" power profile. To configure this using a GUI, go to the Start Menu, search for...

Windows 8's enterprise play: evolution not revolution

Microsoft does expect businesses to use Windows 8: it's not just for consumers. However, based on a seminar it held in London this week, its adoption looks like being a long, slow process....
