Windows Server 2008 is better than Vista, but why?

IT infrastructure veteran Mark Wilson asks:

"It seems that, wherever you look, Windows Server 2008 is almost universally acclaimed. And rightly so - I believe that it is a fantastic operating system release (let's face it, Windows Server 2003 and R2 were very good, too) and is packed full of features that have the potential to add significant value to solutions.

So, tell me, why are the same journalists who think Windows Server 2008 is great, still berating Windows Vista - the client version of the same operating system codebase?"

The short answer is that Server 2008 delivers new features that customers wanted, whereas Vista delivers new features that Microsoft thought its customers should want. However, it seems there may be more to it than that. Maybe Server 2008 really does perform better than Vista.

Before upgrading to XP I switched over to Server 2000, stepping up from '98 and it was seemingly a more reliable service. What was even better was that my friend had a copy of it that did not need a serial key, and I was still able to register through the Microsoft Certification process without a hitch.

I'm curious to try out Server 2008 now...
