Windows Builder Au looked closely at Windows Server 2008 and then listed the 10 things about the OS that left an impression on them. They looked at 64-bit compatibility, NT domain migration, and the licensing terms, just to name a few.

A server OS still limited to two terminals, that is a surprise. Perhaps not coming from microsoft.

And no ssh out of the box.
ALso I am not that sure about performance gains. It is certainly more snappy without all those bells and jingles that Vista ships with. I run Vista (with everything switched off) side by side in a virtual machine on Linux and for some of my programmes (mostly IDEs like Delphi and a C# environment) inside the Windows guest it really doesn't make that much of a difference. But if I had to choose I would pick w2k8 - it's more much more pleasant to work on.
