Promised in June and then confirmed about a week ago, Microsoft today is attempting to bring more excitement to its most current Windows Server product. Facing slow adoption, the company will begin delivering releases on par with Windows 10 in hopes that it can deliver new features quicker that will push customers to adoption.
Without giving away the exact date, Microsoft today stated that Windows Server version 1709 will deliver sometime in early October. The next big version update of Windows 10 is slated to begin delivering to customers on October 17, so Microsoft should stagger the availability of Windows Server a bit. New versions of Windows Server will now also deliver every six months.
Most expected Windows Server 1709 to actually be ready to test today, but they’ll need to wait until the unslated October date.
