unning IIS on Windows 7 vs. Server 2008

What are the advantages of running a website under IIS with Windows Server 2008 vs. Windows 7?  I am aware of the memory limitation differences (2TB vs. 192GB, respectively), but I am wondering what else there is to consider beyond that.

Please provide links to articles if available.

Aside from the hardware that can be supported the ammount of supported connections is your main limiting factor.

Ya... essentially... Workstation based OS's have a 3 to 10 connection limit imposed upon them, while Server OS's have no limit.

You should also be aware that the version of IIS7 supplied with Windows 7 is only a stripped down version of that on Server 2008. If you wish to use IIS7 on Windows 7 be sure that it will meet your needs.
