After months of planning I have been given the go ahead to purchase a new server at work, so we can get off 2003 / XP and upgrade to 2012 R2 / Windows 8.1. No where looks to be selling Server 2012 R2 yet, from what i can find on Google it should have been available on the 1st of November to retail customers, however no where seems to be selling it yet. Even Dell have no idea when they are likely to offer it with servers. Rather annoying i can get it on Technet, and even download it from here, yet i cant legally purchase it? We're only a small company, with the majority of employees out in the field, so don't have volume licencing.
