SharePoint Server 2007 on Windows Server 2008 R2

This already became a somewhat old topic, since Microsoft released a proper SharePoint Server 2007 slipstream edition with SP2.

There was a bit of confusion/frustration raised over this topic, because WSS 3.0 slipstream with SP2 came out long ago (April 2009), but MOSS 2007 was for some reasons left behind, and MSDN subscribers saw slipstream SP2 edition only in January 2010.
