    I have used Windows Server 2008 for a long time and I should say it is a very fast and reliable operating system. Server 2008 has many features disabled by default, which allows it to have better memory management and run faster than Vista. You can enable a number of features if you need them, like Aero interface or Superfetch. The best site dedicated to Windows Server 2008 is this one:



    Convert your Windows Server 2008 to a perfect Workstation



    It tells and shows you step-by-step actions to enable and use Server features right. Enjoy !

    Thanks for the info. I know several people that run Server 2008 on their workstation. There have been several times I thought about switching (at least to Server 2008 R2) but I like Win 7 enough on my laptop that I don't really feel any need to change.

    Good information though. :)

    You're right Camride, now Windows 7 is sure in focus. Server 2008 was seen as a great alternative to Vista. For example, even with Aero enabled it used 2/3 of RAM of that used by Vista, which made many users happy. A few other links:
