5 out of 5 eggsExcellent OS, with limitations

Pros: Extremely stable, able to recover from power failures and hardware issues better than Linux or Unix, built in free virtualization, better virtualization for Windows than competitors, excellent security, faster and safer NAT routing than Unix or Linux, great for a small business. Great for DNS and DHCP. Best of all, wonderfully easy to work with.

Cons: Virtualization doesn't play well with Linux, and the licensing limitations on the Standard version only allow one virtual machine on the same license. (Enterprise allows 5, Datacenter has no limit)

Other Thoughts: I work in a test lab with all kinds of operating systems, from Linux (SLES, RHEL, CentOS) and Unix (Solaris, AIX, HP-UX) to Windows (2000, 2003, 2008). Windows 2008 R2 is the best of the best. I've had so many installs of Unix or Linux crash due to a power outage that it drives me crazy when we get a little blip in power, but the Windows machines just boot back up and keep plugging along. Most of my coworkers are Linux fans, but I can do whatever they want with Windows and get it done in one tenth of the time it takes to do it with Linux. Even if all versions of Linux were free, it would cost far less to run this just because of so much labor involved with doing anything with Linux. It isn't perfect, but it really is that good.
