Large scale adoption in the data center is still dependent on IT shops investing in the 64 bit hardware and software required to run VS well. However, with success stories like this getting out to the public, it won???t take long for IT shops to at least start playing with VS 2008.
There's a ton more to consider when deploying VS in production, but MS seems to have done a good job addressing those concerned with single point of failure and high availability in virtualized environments.
MUCH MUCH more to come on VS 2008.
