You know what the best price ever is? Free with a $20 Starbucks gift card. The second best price is free, and I found something free today that I really like. Today Microsoft Press released a free (that’s right, free!) eBook on Windows Server 2012 R2 Preview. They released on for Window Server 2012 and it was pretty good, so I was glad to see them do it again for Windows 2012 R2. Once again they have released it in the three main formats; PDF, ePub, and Mobi. Is that service or what? After Windows 2012 R2 RTM’s they promise to update the book.
If you have one of those fancy Kindles like I do, it gets even better. You can use Send To Kindle to send files through the Internet and onto your Kindle. After you install Send To Kindle you can right click on files and send them to your Kindle. The best part of this method is that it puts the book up into the Kindle Cloud, so it syncs between your devices and you can read it online.
If you don’t want to install Send To Kindle you can hook your Kindle up to your computer with a USB cable and copy the Mobi over.
However you choose to enjoy the book, please leave Microsoft a comment and thank them.
