Exchange 2007 on Windows 2003, not issues what's so ever.

I would use Windows 2008 for Hyper-V because  I was planning to run Exchange
roles in virtualization mode.

we plan to implement exchange 2007 64bit in a cluster single copy. But we
are apprehensive about going on windows 2008 OS. I am not sure about the
advantages of exchange 2007 on windows 2008. More security is not a major
criteria for me to decide on this. Apart from this how stable is windows
2008. We need to host at least 8000 mailboxes in a cluster, so any unknown
issues will be a real pain.

In fact we have not used windows 2003 64 bit either.We are currently running
on exchage 2003 on windows 2003. Hence thought of taking some inputs from
wise people. 


Can you please provide your inputs on exchange 2007 on windows 2003 64 bit
or 2008 64 bit ! Which one is better and why do you think so.
