  • Hi,

    There is no product called Windows server 2008 R1, it is just called windows server 2008.

    the main difference is that it is a complete other kernel, windows 2008 (no R2) is build on the same kernel as vista, server 2008 R2 is based on the same kernel as windows 7.

     Here is a overview with changes between 2008 and 2008 R2 http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd391932(WS.10).aspx

  • R1 is a term used sometimes in the community if people try to stress out they mean w2k8 and not w2k8 R2. its no official product name

  • Hi,

    There is no Windows server 2008 R1, if I understand correctly, it should be Windows server 2008/2008 SP2, Windows Server 2008 and Windows Server 2008 SP2 are the same operating system, just at a different service pack level. As for as the windows 2008 and windows 2008 SP2 concern it’s uses the same operation system kernel of windows vista, and in windows Server 2008 R2 has the same operation system kernel of Windows7.
