· Windows Server 2008 for Itanium-Based Systems. With Windows Server 2003, support for Itanium-based systems was offered through both Enterprise and Datacenter editions. With Windows Server 2008, support for Itanium-based system is now a separate edition and is targeted for specific workloads. This release does not include the Hyper-V feature as Hyper-V only works on x64 hardware.
· Windows Web Server 2008. Besides changing the name slightly (from Windows Server 2003 Web Edition), we have increased the technical limitations so it supports more processors and memory, making it a more robust solution. Since this is targeted specifically for web servers, this edition also does not include the Hyper-V feature.
· Language support. The language support in Windows Server 2008 will be similar to Windows Server 2003, with the addition of Chinese Traditional (Hong Kong), making it a total of 19 supported languages. All the editions (except for Itanium-based systems) will be available in both x86 and x64 in all 19 languages. We will also no longer have a Multilingual User Interface (MUI) SKU for Windows Server 2008. Instead, you’ll be able to download a language pack at no additional cost.
