    Perhaps it would be better to have Windows Server 8 related posts in this thread?

    The look and feel is the same as the client version - ghastly!

    I haven't looked at it yet, please tell me it doesn't have the silly metro interface on it. I know it's ok for windows 8 tablets, but I don't really think it works on desktops. I doubt Microsoft would be silly enough to include metro in a server os though.

    Never underestimate stupidity.

    Logon takes you into desktop, with Server manager, but it is essentially the same Metro pain, just without lots of consumer Apps.
