But why use Vista on the server? ;-)
The one thing I don't quite get is why you'd want to use the 2008 server edition considering that its basically Vista lying underneath which has the several server components on top. I've been using Vista for quite some time (came pre-installed on one of my machines) and eventually moved to Windows 7; never looked back again either.
I'm well aware that even Vista can have its uses (its also used to boot the Win7 restoration section) but still...
As to the El Reg presentation; its a bit boring right now. I dropped in somewhat in the middle I guess and instead of seeing good technical stuff I only see a couple of guys talking about how great and different Win7 is without anything technical. Either I all missed it or this is more like a Win7 promotion instead of a nice technical howto.
Oh; "We're going into deployment later on in the session".. Seems I didn't miss it but man this is WAY boring stuff right now. If they don't get to some point within 10 minutes or so then I'm dropping off. I don't need people to tell me how great Win7 is, I want them to SHOW me.
Also... Doh, now someone tells us that MS is dropping support for Windows XP in 2013 ? MS themselves tells you a completely different story, namely 2014:
Sorry but I don't think I'll be attending this session any further with mistakes like these are being made.
