Executive Summary

When one takes first look at Windows Server 2008, he or she will find that many of the traditional tools that graced Server 2003 are still around: the Computer Management console; the System Information utility; the Services console; and so forth. Administrative Tools are still in a Start menu folder named "Administrative Tools," and one can start feeling fairly comfortable with the GUI if he or she has background with prior versions of Windows. Windows Server 2008 has the look and feel of Windows Vista. (This makes sense, when one considers that both products were developed under the "Longhorn" moniker, and share many megabytes of code.) The new collapsible Start menu, the Vista-style search facilities, as well as some of the tools (such as Windows Firewall with Advanced Security) look just as they do in the Vista GUI.
