Windows 8 and Server 2008 R2
I know this is something I could 'Google' but frankly I trust this place more than those search results.
Has anybody taken the plunge and deployed Windows 8 on a Server 2008-R2 network? If so, how does it work in terms of compatability. Are you able to still customise things with scripts okay due to not being able to use GPO's for it? Reason I'm asking is we're on a Windows XP/Server-2003 network and we're in the process of migrating to 08R2. We were supposed to also migrate XP to Windows 7 but the boss can't stand 7, so he's wanting to deploy Windows 8. Of course, this was something he decided after buying 08R2 and the license, so getting Server 2012 won't be a possibility right now.
My main concerns are how well we could customise the 'Modern UI' start menu, redirecting the libraries and all the basic steps for setting it up.
