I'm guessing this naturally becomes an OSI question more than a PSI one, because of the nature and price of Windows Server 2008. But knowing that Vista and Windows Server 2008 share a substantial amount of common code, I'm curious to know if Secunia has a timeline for providing support for the latest Windows Server OS.

Thanks either way. Congratulations on launching the final release of PSI. Also, please check out my recent review (updated today to reflect the 1.0.0.1 release) of Secunia PSI at http://www.viztaview.com/blog/Secunia-Personal-Sof...

We do not have any current plan of providing support for server operating systems as it is limited how many home users that has this need.

However, even though we don't officially support these server operating systems,
it doesn't necessarily mean that the Secunia PSI doesn't work on them. We just can't help you should the Secunia PSI not work.
