Windows "Windows Server 2008, which was released earlier this month, was officially launched today. Windows Server 2008 brings many eagerly anticipated admin-pleasing features such as a stripped-down mode called "Server Core" that does away with many unnecessary features that are normally installed, and a new virtualization platform - 'Hyper-V' - that should increase Microsoft's foothold in this increasingly important market sector. Windows Server 2008 wasn't the only product to be launched today either; Visual Studio 2008 also saw its official launch, even though it has been finished and available since November, and some fanfare was made about SQL Server 2008, though that won't be finished until later in the year."

Microsoft already have a product for the personal server market and I doubt they expect huge take up.

If you think this has anything to do with the home server market in any shape or form shows your limited knowledge.

Telling us you wouldn't use a $999 product for your home server is about as useful as a snooze button on a smoke alarm. Well done though.
