So does this mean there won't be a Windows 7 Server?

Seems odd to me that an OS that won't be released for at least another year has the server component coming out sooner, as an update to an earlier component.

As a whole corporate environments (especially servers) move at a slower pace, so maybe Microsoft wants to maintain the illusion that this is just an incremental upgrade.

"and exponentially increase your geek knowledge."
I think I'll stick to just know that the current servers we have are on the limit of what the os can handle at present.

Tindytim: it is known thath Windows 7 server == Windows 2008 R2. W7 is just a polish of base laid by Vista changes.

Anyway, 256 cores seems like a lot, but Linux support 4096 on x86/64.

Windows Server 2008 will be based on Windows 7 code-base
It appears that Windows Server 2008 R2 will be the server variant of 7, or at least according to a few other publications.

Very nice. MS is making a comeback after falling asleep for a few years there, and I hope they succeed. Us in America need to stand behind our own. Not to mean anything against another county, but our pride has weakened and it's time to step up over here.

International coorperations have no nationailty. That applies both to "danish" AP møller and "us" microsoft and any other big international company really. Siemens isn't german, siemens is international.
