Slide 2

I installed a couple of my Windows Server 2008 instances using the product's spruced-up network installation facility, called WDS (Windows Deployment Services). Once I'd installed an appropriate server role, I was able to boot a new system on my network from WDS and kick off a new installation.


A tour through Windows Server 2008 shows the server operating system to be leaner and more secure than ever before.
