Windows Microsoft is continuing its efforts to simplify its product lines, and has cut the number of versions for the next release of Windows Server down from twelve to just four: Datacenter, Standard, Essentials, and Foundation. Pretty straightforward. Windows Home Server gets axed, but then again, I don't think anybody bought Windows Home Servers anyway.

Strange arbitrary limits.

It is odd that they impose those strange, arbitrary limitations on the number of virtualised clients, and registered users.

To me, it makes no sense to buy any of those, given the limits, when it is possible to get fully-functional, fully supported server software for far cheaper elsewhere.

Does the windows logo still mean so much, even these days?

Well in my company we are migrating a lot of projects from UNIX to Windows.

Why? I can't see any advantage MS-Windows would have over UNIX.
