depends on what you mean

There is Windows Server 2003 and Windows Server 2008

if by "just microsoft windows"  you mean all other products

Windows XP, NT, ME, 95, 98, 7,  etc.

There are lots of differences depending on specific versions

The main difference (at a high level) between the ones with "Server" in their name is they are intended to be connected to by other clients, whereas the non-Server products are intended to be used locally.

This is confusing since you can login to a Server locally and use it like you would other windows platforms.
conversely, you can remote connect into non-server products.


you've cross posted to the Oracle zone,  each version of windows has its own list of compatibilities ranging from full support to desported to never supported depending on the version of Oracle
