  • I see no reasons for existing clients to upgrade, especially since Hypervisor isn’t available (yet). Stretched clusters is nice (not mentioned), but has implications. Powershell is no business case. The other “selling points” are – under normal circumstances – already dealt with, don’t apply (Vista’s required) or are a farce (IIS7 for delivering rich web content blabla). I’ll wait for real-world experiences and SP1, thank you very much.
