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."

the kernel will be the same. and all the IT benefits from 7 will be in 2008 R2. it's a lot more synced up than they are making it seam. it just like how vista and 2008 were. and trust me it's worth the update IIS 7.5 and wayyy easier deploying of roles is just great. it is what 2003 R2 was to 2003 with even more goodies.
