The age of six-monthly Windows Server updates starts … now!

I like the idea

I believe most of the comments so far are from people that deal with infrastructure and not developers that want to have access to the latest tools. From an infrastructure perspective, upgrading and migrating operating systems every 18 months is way to short. From a development perspective, I can see the huge benefit as I often work with developers that want to work with the latest products available. If this means we deploy a 18 month release for non-prod environments and they get an opportunity to develop applications and install them in a LTS release that will be coming down the pipe in a foreseeable future, that could allow us to get ideas formed and projects started much earlier.

It has its place and will eventually become the new norm once it catches on.
