3.0 out of 5 stars CAUTION: This is an OEM license, NOT A RETAIL LICENSE!! 11 Jan 2014
By Christopher L. Barber - Published on Amazon.com

Obviously I am down-rating this review due to Amazon's completely inept product description, not the quality of Microsoft's server software. Amazon, are you listening? YOU HAVE TO COMPLETELY AND ACCURATELY DISCLOSE THE LICENSE TYPE OF THE MICROSOFT PRODUCTS YOU SELL!!! This is critical information for the buyer, who may not be able to legally use the software they receive because the license is not the right type. Do you have any comprehension of this at all? If not then please discontinue marketing these products. You are doing your customers an extreme disservice and poisoning your own market.

Will I consider purchasing another MS product through Amazon in the future? Probably not.

Fortunately I can accept this license in this case, although I was not expecting it. It is extremely dissapointing to receive this little surprise in the mail.

Other discrepencies in the product description:
"Media: CD ROM" really? it's called a DVD.
"Important Notice: A CAL is required to access this server software" Duh. Of course it is. How about you also correctly point out that Server 2008R2 Standard includes 5 CALs by default. Information like this is plainly obvious to IT people but this "important notice" makes it look like you're specifically saying that this particular sku somehow does not include those CALs. It does of course, it says so right on the box, right after it says THIS IS AN OEM SYSTEM BUILDER PACK"

So there. If this is the product you want, have at it. It's a good price and 2008R2 is a great OS unless you're ready to make the leap to 2012. Otherwise call someone who actually understands Microsoft licensing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Windows 2008r2 - Very clean and stable 1 April 2013
By Mark Hammons - Published on Amazon.com
Unlike previous releases of Windows Server, such as 2000 and 2003, Server 2008r2 provides easy access to many features and server roles. Even though I'm MCSE certified, one wouldn't need to be in order to deploy a robust server solution. While I don't mind the command line, I don't feel the addition of an intuitive GUI detracts from the server environment. Surf40 would do well to put the linux "kool-aid" back in the cooler and relax a bit. Server 2008r8 delivers on its promises and (at least so far) is rock solid. (Now let's see what Server 2012 is up to.)

Good job Microsoft.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not new in box as shown 17 Jun 2014
By Lana Beregszazi - Published on Amazon.com

I received a burned copy of Windows Server 2008 rather than a new, in box copy. I'll know if it works or not when i receive the drives that didn't come with my server and can set up my entire system.
