    I know this is W10 Forum - but any users of W2016 server yet.

    Hi there

    just wondering if anybody has tried W2016 Server yet -- would be interested in seeing how it performs as a Multi-media server compared with W10 Pro.

    Interesting to see if W10 drivers will work where there isn't a W2016 one.

    I am using Windows Server 2016 Technical Preview 4 to host my local domain, having not a single functionality issue. Regarding drivers, it is a pure Windows 10 as far as I can tell, having no issues in using Windows 10 drivers.

    I've always liked Windows Server versions. A shame that MS discontinued the excellent Windows Home Server, it was pretty much perfect for a home network.

    Anyway, the Tech Preview 4 is about as perfect as I expected a Windows Server OS to be. I think you will not be disappointed.
