My gut feeling is the same, but it goes back to Win2k and earlier days. 
  I can't think of anything that has been a problem with 64-bit win 
2003/2008 as production servers and I sort of like the way you can 
decide after-the-fact that you want to convert a disk to software raid.

The SUSE-favoring guy has some tests that he says shows that their 
real-time kernel is essential for what his programs do - which is 
probably true for one particular instance.
