Microsoft is still talking about making its server OS more modular.
“Having less surface area does reduce the servicing and the amount of code you have running and exposed, so we have done a lot of work in 2008 to make the system more modular. You have the server manager; every role is optional, and there are more than 30 components not installed by default, which is a huge change,” Laing said.
Amazing. Linux has been almost completely modular for approximately 10 years now. And Microsoft has been touting modularity for about half that.
