    Funny to be forced to install Chrome to use Windows Admin Center! What's the problem implementing Edge on Server 2019??? Same kernel as Windows 10..

    I wish to use windows server 2019 as my workstation OS since windows 10 is to insecure and contains a lot of mickey mouse software that I can't even uninstall. I am a webdeveloper so I need edge on my workstation to test my web applocations frontend. Therefor you need to provide me with Edge for windows server 2019. Alternatively I will have to switch to Linux since Edge does run on Linux. Yet if I do that, I will also have to swich away from .net and develop using Java instead, alternatively use firestore as my backend. It up to you..

    This is again from the RDS perspective. Edge is the most secure browser due to exploit guard. Customers are trying to standardise on Edge across their estate. They have it Windows 10 but not on their thin client session. This is becoming an app compat issue

    I don't know whether I should vote for this or not. On one hand, a web browser does not belong on a server. On another hand, ... holy ****, IE11 does not belong on any computer!

    provide edge for windows 2016, we cannot use Honolulu on a Windows 2016 server with all admin Tools installed (central managment server forme)

    We have many clients who use Windows Server 2008 R2 which they use to run IE11 to access our apps. The clients have a thin desktop all over the hospital which remotes into the server. This provides them with a low TCO. Now we are adding support for Microsoft Edge but our clients using Terminal Server can't use this deployment model. They would have to install FireFox or Chrome. It's ridiculous that you can't run Edge on Windows Server.
