I would use it if more software would work on it.
What exactly are they supposed to be fixing?
Its based on Server 2003 SP1 x64 Edition, which means it can and does use the same updates and service packs. (Which you can guarantee they will be supporting)
Also, it is supposed to be able to use all the Vista x64 drivers, so that eliminates any compatibility issues.
As it stands, the only thing that I can't do on my system is use my Samsung laser printer or get an updated MySQL ODBC connector.
