So a major price increase then...
"the price of 16‑core licenses of Windows Server 2016 Datacenter and Standard Editions will be the same price as the 2‑processor license of the corresponding editions of the Windows Server 2012‑R2 version."
So on my fancy new 14-core dual proc boxes running Server 2012-R2, I can expect to pay nearly double the licensing for Server 2016? And let me guess... the core count will be based on the number of cores in the host it's running on, not on the number of cores assigned to a VM instance running on that host.
Not to worry, the Azure version will be just slightly cheaper (at first). The job's not done until it doesn't run - in your datacenter.
