Interesting. I wonder what the price will be, or if it will be available as a retail product.

So no separate SKU. I guess I shouldn't be surprised.

I 'assume' there will be a standalone version like HyperV.

Looks a bit like Docker

Powered by Docker, specifically. And the Ars article mentions that was well. :)

Looks like Microsoft is really pushing for that low impact server, trying to edge in on linux's "space"

Not read everything on this but I see it as a hugely cut down version of a server core install right?

80-90% smaller footprint across the board... I'm sold!

 

Like the name too... Can't call it Windows when they've taken the GUI away. lol
