I don't want to come off sounding like I am stomping on someone, so
please forgive me if I sound that way.
It is important to understand that magnetic tape is supported, just not
by the backup option offered by Microsoft. Symantec and CA and all the
other backup companies still support tape on Windows 2008.
Also with NAC it is a Microsoft only solution thus far.

W2K8 has some advantages and disadvantages. It's great if you want to
run Network Access Control or virtualize your servers, especially if you
use the Server Core installation. Also, you can stop and start AD for
maintenance purposes with out taking the entire server offline and of
course there's RMS and Printer Managment (both also available in
W2K3R2). The disadvantages are that you can no longer use magnetic tape
as a backup solution (has to be disc-based backup) and you need a Vista
box to use the Admin Tools. Hope this helps.

Has anyone installed Windows Server 2008? I am planning on purchasing a
couple of new servers to use as my domain controllers and am trying to
decide whether I should stick with Windows Server 2003 or go with the
2008 edition. If anyone has any input or experiences they care to
I would appreciate it.
