End of support for Windows 2003!

Windows Server 2003 support is ending July 14, 2015

In my opinion, Windows 2003 was one of the best Operating Systems for Servers. When it was released in April 24, 2003, it took the enterprise IT infrastructure to the next level. It remains a very important link in our IT-Cloud evolution, and it’s going to remain in history as one of the greatest things Microsoft developed.

What does end of support mean for you? After July 14, Microsoft will no longer issue security updates for any version of Windows Server 2003. If you are still running Windows Server 2003 in your datacenter, you need to take steps now to plan and execute a migration strategy to protect your infrastructure.

But now, thanks to Google technologies what we need is just a Chrome browser, a Midi Drum Set + Midi Guitar and a Midi Keyboard… After that all it remains is to gather your friends and start recording!

All this is available on  Chrome for Android, Windows, Mac, Linux and Chrome OS.
