Windows Server 2008 Version Overkill?

One of my favorite newsletters/blogs is WServerNews written by Sunbelt exec Stu Sjouwerman. In his most recent issue, Stu tries to make sense of Windows Server 2008 versions and their pricing. You'll have to scroll down to page 4 to get his analysis, but it's well worth the trip.

Eventually, there will be eight different major editions of Windows Server 2008. Oh, and there's a standalone version of the Hyper-V hypervisor. Then, Stu looks at the 32- and 64-bit versions, and comes up with as many as 16 different versions!

If a guy that writes WServerNews can't make sense of this, we're all in trouble.
