Download SharePoint Server 2016 Preview from Official Microsoft Download Center
SharePoint Server 2016 IT Preview has been designed, developed, and tested with the Microsoft Software as a Service (SaaS) strategy at its core.

Announcing availability of SharePoint Server 2016 IT Preview and cloud hybrid search
Today we’re excited to announce availability of both SharePoint Server 2016 IT Preview and the new cloud hybrid search preview for SharePoint Server 2013 and 2016. As we continue to develop SharePoint Server 2016, we’re paying close attention to trends in content management, team collaboration, user experiences across devices, and how the cloud can be blended into existing on-premises scenarios in new and compelling ways. We’ve been working hard to get this out to you, and we know you’ve been waiting patiently since we announced that it was coming. This is a long post, but there is a lot of important information, so if you want to jump in and install the preview, I really encourage you to read it completely.

There are a number of new resources made available in parallel to this launch to include:

MS User voice

5 02 2015

It is just what it sounds: a place where the end users can shout to the product group with feedback on products.
The product group teams DO READ and consider the expressed opinions. Trust me, I know!

You can search and read the already existing ideas, vote on them (up or down!) and add new ones if you feel nobody has already picked the topic.

Take a look and be a part of the product shaping process.

Don’t stand-by!


My favourite ones:

A bigger list has been shared in a great post by Darrell C Webster in his Curah! blog  here.
