Recently I set up a dedicated server with SoftLayer as a hosting provider. They offered the choice between Windows Server 2012 and 2008. When trying to find documentation on the versions of 2008, I noticed an interesting thing – Microsoft has removed all documentation for Server 2008! Here, give it a try.
- Google “Windows Server 2008″. Other than Wikipedia the first link is “Windows Server 2012″.
- Visit this Technet link for Server 2008 documentation. Click “Windows Server 2008 R2 Editions Overview”. Where you do get? “Windows Server 2012: How to Buy”
