This is indeed based on Vista, in the sense that it shares the same exact kernel and other core binaries. Windows Server 2008 R2, however, uses Windows 7 as its base.By what you say, you make Windows Server editions seem oh-so-much-more robust than their desktop counterparts - can you justify this?
Quote from: Fapiko on February 05, 2010, 08:51:34 PMYou make Windows 7 sound like it's not robust. Can you justify this? I leave my Windows 7 desktop running for 30+ days at a time, usually with 20 or more applications open. Seems pretty robust to me.
Quote from: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/RobustRobustness is the quality of being able to withstand stresses, pressures, or changes in procedure or circumstance. A system, organism or design may be said to be "robust" if it is capable of coping well with variations (sometimes unpredictable variations) in its operating environment with minimal damage, alteration or loss of functionality.
