The first time you start up Windows Server 2012, and you login, it is the first thing you see. 

“Even when I install it as a Server Core installation?”

Today’s blog post in our 31 day series is by my buddy Brian Lewis: http://mythoughtsonit.com/2012/10/31-days-of-our-favorite-things-windows-server-manager-2012/.  In it he lays out the “whats” and “whys”, and even some “how”.
