I'm wondering about the differences between Windows MultiPoint Server 2011 and Windows Server 2008 R2 but only from a MultiPoint Server 2011 perspective. For example, I don't care what Multipoint Server 2011 has that Windows Server 2008 R2 doesn't, I only care about what windows Server 2008 R2 has that MultiPoint doesn't. Is there a product feature matrix available?

thanks , but actually this doesn't answer the question,"I don't care what Multi-Point Server 2011 has that Windows Server 2008 R2 doesn't". that video shows exactly what i don't care about... – Stacker Sep 4 '11 at 7:07
Well in my world MP server and server R2 are two different products, R2 is a server OS where MP is some screen sharing thingy. this doc. have some of MP keyfeatures – Ninja Sep 5 '11 at 7:19
Thanks for the link.. However Windows MP Server 2011 is based on the core Windows Server 2008 R2 actually its windows Server 2008 R2 with Extensions, i hope someone with experience in MP 2011 server would show up and let us know if they did restrict any R2 Features in MP server 2011. – Stacker Sep 6 '11 at 6:58

There is a features matrix on Page 38 of the Deployment Guide.

That's about as specific as any of the MS literature on the subject gets, I think. Note that most of the features available in 2008 R2 Std appear to be available under Roles 7 Features, but a good chunk of them are untested or might be generally broken, especially running as a Domain Controller.

As for 2008 R2 Std itself, see here:
