So Windows admins won't use Windows Server 2008 "Server Core" [1] ?

Note the interesting quote from Andrew Mason:

Andrew Mason, a program manager on the Windows Server team, noted that a
primary motivation for producing a Server Core variant of Windows Server
2008 was to reduce the attack surface of the operating system, and that
about 70% of the security vulnerabilities in Microsoft Windows from the
prior five years would not have affected Server Core.
