Do you think Windows Server 2008 will be a viable solution to administer Windows Vista? it would be nice if they would include things like the ability to turn off UAC, Areo, etc. There are many things that I would not want a user to have access to,i.e. widgets, media center, etc.

I feel now that Server 2003 is inadequate to administer Vista of any version.

What do you think?

Hi, I run SBS 2003 with 4 XP machines and 1 Vista and it manages Vista fine. But for a coprate world the problem would be compatibility with in house software and Vista. Through group policys I can disable media centre ect on my Vista machine no probs. Yes you have to turn off UAC from Vista but it will be interesting to run 2008 in VM and see how it performs with Vista.
