I, like other ASP.NET developers, have always used a server OS as a development environment - typically due to a objection to having to hack XP in order to get multiple virtual IIS hosts.

Very few complaints about it as a whole I appear to be one of the few who love Windows Vista as a 'home platform' - but also loved IIS7 from first glance.
