Windows Server 2008 RC Available to Public

Although the Windows Server operating systems aren’t primarily intended for gaming, some gamers prefer to run them due to lower resource usage and, arguably, better security. Such people, and perhaps some others, will be pleased to hear that Microsoft has launched a public beta of Windows Server 2008 Release Candidate, where users automatically receive a 30-day trial and will need to register for a product key to continue using the software up to June 30th next year. You can download Windows Server 2008 and register for a product key here.Source: Microsoft

There was no DX10 in the beta, so I wonder if it is in RC1. Sever 2008 is what everyone wanted Vista to be IMO....

Hey, cool -- I was needing a next-gen Windows environment to test applications in, and my department won't spring for a copy of Vista, so this should do nice. Anyone have any idea if this runs in a virtual machine?
