Now then,

Just a couple of queries regarding these.

I have used vista sp1 & server 2008 daily on almost identical machines.

Machine 1 : A64 3200+ 939, 1gb ddr400, 80 ide hdd - Server 2008

Machine 2 : A64 3400+ am2, 1gb ddr533, 60 sata hdd - Vista SP1

I use the same applications on both machines. Both machines also get identical scores in vista of 2.1.

It strikes me that the server 2008 machine is so much snappier than the vista installation. Why is this when I have the same features enabled, same uptime & specs?

I have also had a couple of hangups with the vista machine. No such problems for server 2008???

I was under the impression that MS upgraded vista sp1 to be pretty much the same os as s2k8...but without all the server funtionality?

Cheers

server editions of windows are always more stable than normal editions, just because they have to, servers just shouldn't ever crash.

Have you disabled everything on the Vista machine that isn't installed by default/isn't available in Server 2008? The default Server 2008 installation is a lot smaller than Vista eg just compare the number of Control Panel applets between the two!

Point taken on that one : I see where you're coming from there.

@Tristan : If they are able to provide the great stability of 2008, whats the point not having Vista that stable?

I think also that Server 2008 is built for speed, and functionality, rather than looks, so thats why it performs better.

I haven't had any problems with stability on Vista, they use the same kernel so there shouldn't be any difference, the only difference is what components are installed on top of that.
