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."

Why not just leave Linux out of Windows-related topics, even just for once? >_<

"Why not just leave Linux out of Windows-related topics, even just for once? >_<"

Because this is a major upgrade to anyone who has not been using the lastest version or two from Microsoft (reasons of costs or just that the present setup was working ok).

If one is going to do a major upgrade of one's servers then it makes sense to compare it to what else is available, and why one should consider the non-MS options.
