Server 2k8 in Workstation OS
I use this at work. We are testing Windows Hyper-V and you can only RDP to Server 2008 using Vista or another server2008. As we are all XP (and staying that way) then I tried the server2008 as a PC route. Performance is amazing on a single 3GHz processor and 1GB RAM. I applied the latest graphics card driver and now have it running the full Aero desktop with little apparent speed difference. I gather that Windows 7 is supposed to be close to the performance of server2008 - let's hope so.
