During the roadshow I delivered a few days ago I've received a lot of questions about the upgrade path for Windows Server 2008. Now the "Ask the Performance team" blog posted a very interesting article about the upgrade path and resource limitations of Windows Server 2008.

Here is the upgrade path for Windows Server 2008:

If you are currently running: You can upgrade to:
Windows Server 2003 Standard Edition (R2, Service Pack 1 or Service Pack 2) Full Installation of Windows Server 2008 Standard Edition
Full Installation of Windows Server 2008 Enterprise Edition
Windows Server 2003 Enterprise Edition (R2, Service Pack 1 or Service Pack 2) Full Installation of Windows Server 2008 Enterprise Edition
