This is cool as well.
Seems Microsoft will also be focusing on optimizing Windows 8 networks for WANs:
* Windows 8 Remote Desktop transport improvements for WAN scenarios
– Own feature for bandwidth and latency optimization under varying network conditions
– Design protocol and interface changes with requirement to maintain backwards compatibility
– Requirement to scale to hundreds of simultaneously connected sessions while maintaining performance standards
This will be cool to compare all this Windows 8 networking improvement with the Windows 7 networking features as well.
