On July 14th, support ended for Windows Server 2003. Everyone is talking about how you need to replace your 2003 servers immediately. Let's be honest though, if you have not replaced them yet, there is either a good reason for staying on them or it is poor planning by your IT department. Now that we're past 2003, let's look ahead. Have you replaced your 2008 servers yet?
Support for server 2008 does not end until 2020, but on the other hand, it was released in summer of 2008, meaning it is now 7+ years old, an eternity in technology. In Summer of 2008, the iPhone 3G just came out, introducing GPS and the App store for the first time. Would you be happy using an iPhone 3G today?
