To improve Windows Server I suggest you ...

Decouple Windows Media Stack from Desktop Experience

Some Products requiere Windows Media Services as a prerequisite for Installation (for example Exchange Server). Currently you have to install Dekstop Expirience to get these Services.

The downside of this is, that Applications which require these services are automatically required to run with a GUI (no server core support because of Desktop experience prerequisites)
