MS just declared the version of XP to be counterfeit. It's a group volume deal, no biggie, I have a paid for version of XP, but... I've been trying to get an academic version of Vista Home Premium or Ultimate and running into some problems. I don't want to spend much on the vista upgrade as I plan to go to Windows 7 as soon as its released. My understanding though is that you can't go from xp to 7, that it must be a fresh install, so I thought a 70 bucks on Vista would be worth it. I have Server 2008 because I qualified for the dreamscape academic software freebies.
Sooo... what are some thoughts on using the server 2008 as my desktop software for awhile, till 7 comes out? I've been using 2003 server at my web site box and it doesn't seem that much different than xp, though I know of course it's server aspects.
