Vijayshinva Karnure wrote a very cool article about running Server 2008 as a desktop os or rather as a Windows Vista replacement. It seems that besides additional features like Hyper-V, Server 2008 runs approx. 20% faster than Vista.

If only upgrading Vista to Server 2008 would be possible… (has anyone ever tried)?


Open Server Manager and in the Security Information tab click Configure IE ESC. An improvement in Server 2008 is that you can disable it for Administators but enable it for Normal Users, this is nice for Terminal Server and Citrix environments.
