Claims Mode is Default Authentication in SharePoint 2013


First thing you will notice after installing SharePoint 2013 and If you went to create a web application you will not see any option for selecting the type of authentication.  Claims Based Authentication is default in 2013.

You can use PowerShell CommandLet New-SPWebApplication if you are still  interested in using Classic Mode Authentication it is not recommended.

I am sure you will enjoy the PowerShell ISE is now providing Intellisence and parameter selection.
