A new Server Operating System is not a whole lot of good without great applications running on it. This time around some of these are even open source vendors. The list of partners supporting Windows Server 2008 provides an insight into the momentum around the product just before the launch tomorrow.

Today we announced a pretty big list of partners that are pledging support for Windows Server 2008. We never thought that we would get some many partners supporting us by launch, by at the bottom of this release is a list of over 1000 applications which are either certified, having been through the "works with" test or have pledged support for the Server that we have been working with for over 2 years now.

The full list can be found here.
