Windows "Windows Server 2012 probably won't have the adoption lag in the enterprise that Windows 8 is bound to face. That's because, aside from the Metro GUI, Server 2012's biggest changes are in substance rather than style, building upon what the company delivered with Windows Server 2008 Release 2 three years ago. In particular, Server 2012 takes two management features Server 2008 R2 admins will be familiar with - Server Manager and PowerShell - and expands on them considerably."

There's a lot more in W2012 than ServerManager and Powershell only (even if both has expanded). Storage, virtualization, performance and scalability improvements... you name it.

Great release.

lol good point.

However 400+ days without rebooting means more than one year of missed patches... not exactly an ideal situation..
