The Windows Server 2008 user interface is an abomination of nature. What were they thinking? Seriously.

Just had to get that off my chest.

Looks like vista, acts like Vista, sucks like Vista.
I'll keep 2003.

Of course, that's what I said with Win98 when that crap Millenium came out.

You have 'Windows' and 'thinking' in the same paragraph: Fail.

I have my servers at home running Server03 and I really have no complaints except I noticed that when I was learning group policies that fixing up a screw up was a real PITA. It has some other annoyances that I run into from time to time but I still like 03. I have a domain set up at home with a DC and a RRAS and have not had too many annoying issues.

actually, its infinitely better than Vista.

its like Vista without the extra crap...so it actually runs smooth. in fact it runs better in VMWare than XP Pro!

I don't use my Vista, period, unless I have to. 08 server isn't bad..its the 'different' stuff that annoys me.

Have you seen Windows 7?
