Microsoft announced the availability of SharePoint 2016 Preview yesterday. As expected, This Office server is a tad behind its counterparts in the race to the Office 16 Wave launch expected in October and is on course for a Q2 2016 release.

Technologist and ICT Manager
Introduction
I'm currently living in Coventry, UK with my Wife, Son and two cats.

When not working with technology I can generally be found playing with technology...or if you're really unlucky playing bass guitar (badly). My likes include music, films, travel and astronomy.
