No. My server is on an extreme policy of nothing is replaced unless it absolutely has to be. I don't need performance on it.

Basically for an up and running server, performance is redundant, but for study and experiment purposes it's almost essential.
You know installing updates, rolls, features etc.. it takes forever.
So I bought ssd especially for that just to find out that after running dcpromo it takes the server to boot up about 3-4 hours! I searched all over the web and found almost nothing since very few people if all install server on ssd.
What I did find on my own is that if I choose different path for database and sysvol folders on a regualr hdd the server will boot almost instantly like it should on ssd.

Well I suppose I can throw the Windows 10 Server Technical Preview on Hyper-V hosted on an SSD on my main computer. I'm not too interested in going out to purchase a new SSD nor re-partitioning one of the ones that I have just for an experiment.

Has MS released anything new yet as far as further information goes? I have been looking online but haven't seen any real updates.

No. Not expecting anything until their event on the 21st. Anything before then is going to be sourced from leaks from those that hold access to more builds.

Thanks for the info. I will try and catch that on the 21st. Hopefully they will discuss pricing and release date. I am just ready to ditch Windows 8.1.1. I just hope Windows 10 is the answer to Windows 8, like 7 was to Vista. At least that is what I have heard MS employees say "unofficially."

To be honest the whole comparison is utter nonsense. The main reasons for Vista's flop are that:

1. Vista's requirements were massively higher than XP meaning a lot of legacy equipment would never see the light of day. The 0.5 GB RAM requirement was also a bad misjudgement of resource necessity:

Windows System Requirements
Windows XPWindows Vista
Pentium 233-megahertz (MHz) processor or faster (300 MHz is recommended)
At least 64 megabytes (MB) of RAM (128 MB is recommended)
At least 1.5 gigabytes (GB) of available space on the hard disk
CD-ROM or DVD-ROM drive
Keyboard and a Microsoft Mouse or some other compatible pointing device
Video adapter and monitor with Super VGA (800 x 600)or higher resolution
Sound card
Speakers or headphones

800-megahertz (MHz) 32-bit (x86) processor or 800-MHz 64-bit (x64) processor
512 megabytes (MB) of system memory
Note On system configurations that use system memory as graphics memory, at least 448 MB of system memory must be available to the operating system after some memory is allocated for graphics.
DirectX 9-class graphics card
32 MB of graphics memory
20-gigabyte (GB) hard disk that has 15 GB of free hard disk space
Internal or external DVD drive
Internet access capability
Audio output capability

And secondly

2. The NT Kernel had a major revision from 5.2 (XP) to 6 (Vista). To this day, Windows 8 is a minor release of the NT Kernel. What this basically meant was that drivers designed for hardware prior to it required a major update to work on Vista. This meant more headaches with upgrades. Many prebuilt computers built for Vista in mind did not suffer this issue.

The main issues with Windows 7 to 8 was that the UX design choice was not polished at all for keyboard and mouse. With that said it was still usable and the major workaround was simply to install some sort of Start Menu program (the most popular one being the open source Classic Shell program). With that installed, the OS is near indistinguishable from Windows 7 with a few upgrades to some components on the desktop that many users like. Most people I know don't bother too much with modern applications and probably will continue doing so with Windows 10.

Another reason I can see from CHU's users is that many legacy trainers won't work on Windows 8. Windows 10 will not resolve that issue though so it's a mute comparison.

One thing I found kind of irksome with the OneDrive setup is that it doesn't seem to be able to exist outside of the C drive. Kind of wish I could move it to the mechanical hard drive as space is a premium on the SSD (where the C drive exists).

And yeah before anyone goes "blah blah privacy blah blah cloud bad", I find it very useful as a backup for non-private information (e.g. music).
