The Windows Server® 2008 operating system includes a variety of technologies that communicate with the Internet to provide increased ease-of-use and functionality. Browser and e-mail technologies are obvious examples, but there are also technologies such as automatic updating that help you obtain the latest software and product information, including bug fixes and security patches.
