What advantages, if any, does Windows Server 2008 have over Server 2012?

Andy has a good answer, but here's a link to the overview for Windows Server 2012:
Technologically, none. They have the exact same system requirements but 2012 scales far more than 2008. The main reason to go with 2008 is if you have a healthy amount of 2008 in your network already, so your admins have a consistent network of systems. Also, 2012 has the Windows 8 UI, and no one likes that.
