Microsoft just released SharePoint 2013 Preview recently.

This is a public beta for the 4th major release of the popular portal software.  As we begin the review process, a quick note for those of you who received an error when installing SharePoint 2013 on Windows 2012 Server Release Candidate. If your setup process failed to set the Application and Web Server roles during the pre-requisite step of the installation program, you might be running the installation program with a domain account.  The log file will have an error message after the "C:\Windows\system32\cscript.exe" "C:\Windows\system32\iisext.vbs" /enext "ASP.NET v4.0.30319" statement. 

To fix this problem, run the setup program using the Administrator account, and use the following steps:

  1. Install Windows 2012 RC
  2. Log in using the default Administrator account, then run the PreReqs installation program.  The server will be rebooted during this phase to complete the installation.
  3. You can now join test server to the domain and perform the rest of the installation using a domain account.

There are lots of information on the web, and you can start with TechNet's Installation Overview for SharePoint 2013.  A good place to post and search for information is the SharePoint 2013 Preview for IT Professionals forum.

Have fun!
