Windows Server 2012 (and R2) is not 'off to a good start'. While the basic server functionality is stable, two things are glaring; first is the use of the awful Metro interface on Server 2012 (whoever agreed this should be shot), and second is MS pushing it as a 'Cloud OS'. 99.99% of installations will be in a standard datacenter as natural upgrades/replacements to 2008R2, that's all. They will be mostly doing the same jobs they've always done; F&P, SQL and other local applications. I certainly wouldn't put a Windows server internet facing. We use Linux for those jobs.
