I use my server for transcoding to ps3 with ps media server, and for sharing file to 2 people. Now, as far as I have read, Vail does all this without any troubles. I have no wish to use drive pooling or backups, so the minor snafus with those features in the beta is of no concern to me. Any other reasons I shouldnt install it? If I install it, do I follow the same activation procedure as for Windows 2008 R2? I would like a permanent activation, is the best way to do this to use a BIOS activation thingie, or does a loader suffice? I bow to you, oh gods of activation wisdom, and ask for guidance!
