Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Windows 2008 will be supported much longer than 2003 R2.
Better memory management
Support for newer applications like Exchange 2010 and SQL Server “Denali”

As well as much better advances in technologies such as DFS and the use of Group Policy Preferences.
