I was wondering what the differences between the different flavours of Server 2008 (Enterprise, Business, etc) and Windows 7 (Home, Premium, Business, Ultimate, etc). Apart from Cost.

The complementary server version to Windows 7 is Windows Server 2008 R2. It has various server roles and excludes desktop applications and drivers.

I had found that particular table and was wondering if there was anything along the lines of that on the MS site, a la what you provided for me for Server 2008 Comparison. Thanks, though. – tombull89 Sep 10 '10 at 17:59
@tombull89: I thought that table was more informative than the MS one, which leaves out Starter, Home Basic and Enterprise. – paradroid Sep 10 '10 at 18:27
