Server 2003 vs XP
Posted on 2006-10-20
We are thinking of moving to a virtual office setup (from a classic physical office setup).
In the new configuration, everyone (five or fewer people) would VPN through a Sonic WALL firewall onto a server.
Connections would probably be ADSL client and either ADSL or T-1 at the server.
The question is which would work best:
(1) Applications and files on a box running Server 2003.
(2) Applications on clients and files on server. In that case, would a fast box running XP Pro be adequate, or would Server 2003 be preferable?
