    Interesting idea. I think it would be more suitable for folks in IT or other techy type folks. Not really a great idea for the average home user (especially with the cost difference), but something worth thinking about regardless.

      The basic idea is that if Vista and 2008 share the same kernel, just use 2008.....its more stable.

      Ultimately (no pun intended) I chose Vista because its what my clients run, and I would be able experience what they go through.

      Very tempting nonetheless.

        I have actually heard of people doing this with Server 2003. It intrigued me, but I never attempted it myself. I might in the near future... however I probably won't be able to play Spring during the long, boring Microsoft events that I attend. If only Server 2008 had better video card drivers... a server with SLI support...

        Does anyone here use a Windows Server OS as their regular OS (Wired?)?

          Yes. I have been doing it in Server 2003 and use a Windows 2008 Server as my desktop.

          But that is my job job though......
