I can understand the desire for Microsoft to minimize the footprint. And for larger shops, this can make a lot sense.
But customers are all small shops and wish to do some "admin" work - aka tell me what to do. Server Core basically shuts them out. Hell, even shuts me out in some ways. Over 20 years ago, I made the move to a GUI (Windows 3.1) because I didn't have to memorize all the little damn option flags for the command line.
I guess I am getting too old. Sigh.
