MS Server 2008 Launches today

It has been 5 years since Microsoft has released a new version of its server operating system.  Although most of our systems at work have been running 2003 for a while now, we still have several 2000 boxes where software support for 2003 R2 SP2 is lacking.  So I’m not sure what to expect.  I believe 2003 has been the best release from Microsoft thus far, and most businesses would need a compelling reason to update active directory and their servers.  I haven’t kept up with any pre-release speculation (assuming their has been some), but I would expect to here something today about the future of Microsoft’s virtual server and hypervisor.  How do you think Microsoft will make that compelling case to business today?  Is there anything they could say that would win us over?  Do we even care?
