WIndows Server 2008 and 2003 WINS question

I have four servers on my network with only one domain.  Two servers are Windows Server 2008 and two are Windows 2003 R2.  I have about 500 clients on my network and all are either Windows XP Professional service pack 3 or Windows 7 Professional.  My question is this, do I need a WINS server installed on my network since there are no Windows 2000 or Windows 98 clients?  Your help is appreciated.  Thanks!

Probably not

If you have multiple sites then you may need WINS to allow users to browse the domain (across sites) otherwise NO.

WINS does for NetBIOS/NetBEUI what DNS does for TCP/IP.  You don't need it, but it can make your life a little easier.  You're right that it's less important these days than it was in the past.
