Windows Server 2008
is now a fully mature server operating system. What began as Windows NT went through major transition in Windows 2000 Server and Windows Server 2003 to become in Windows Server 2008 a full-featured, fully capable server operating system. The net result is a server operating system that is more reliable, easier to install, and more scalable. It also has an excellent directory service, is easier to manage, provides better security, and delivers exceptional web support. The purpose of this book is to show you how to use these features and many others, and how to get the attendant benefits.
