Server 2012 and Win 8 is the supported method to implement it

Open Group Policy Management Editor
Create a new group policy object
Navigate to User Configuration -> Preferences -> Control Panel Settings
Right click on Internet Options choose New then choose Internet Explorer 10
Under the General tab in the area marked "Home page" type out a web adress, hit enter and then type another web address on the next line.

There are some hacks for other versions or work arounds....
