Windows "Even though Microsoft has, in the past, made marketing capital from synchronising its releases, group product manager Ward Ralston says that the desktop and server groups are two separate units that do not need to be released simultaneously. Windows 7 will should make its official appearance this year, but that major shift in the desktop experience isn't going to be matched with a similar sea-change on the server Operating System front. Microsoft has settled for only a minor upgrade to Windows Server 2008."

It's not like 2008 or 2008 R2 won't work with Windows 7. Server costs a hell of a lot more, the feature set better be more compelling than the differences between Vista and Windows 7, or nobody will buy it.

Makes sense to me.
