Summary

Windows Server 2008 includes a full suite of UNIX interoperability tools and protocols as a part of the operating system. This includes the Subsystem for UNIX-Based Applications that gives UNIX and Linux application developers a highly compatible and high-performance subsystem to compile and run UNIX applications on Windows natively. Also included are full Services for Network File Systems to provide file system compatibility across platforms, and an integrated suite of UNIX identity management components.

In the next chapter, we’ll look at deploying Windows Terminal Services on your network to provide centralized application and processing.
