You read that right. All MIX09 attendees will receive a fully functional copy (the real deal) of Windows Web Server 2008 at no cost. That’s nearly a $500 value!

Windows Web Server 2008 is a robust and reliable foundation on which to develop, deliver, and manage rich user experiences and applications. Designed to be used as an Internet-facing Web server, Windows Web Server 2008 is a great choice for hosting the Microsoft Web Platform and you can be up and running in no time with the latest version of the Web Platform Installer.

Featuring Internet Information Services (IIS) 7.0, Windows Web Server 2008 delivers a modular and extensible Web server for developers and designers of innovative Web sites. IIS Extensions bring additional functionality to Windows Web Server 2008 and the Microsoft Web Platform by offering new and more powerful ways to develop, deploy, and manage your Web applications, including ASP.NET and PHP.
