I use Windows Vista Ultimate 64-bit on my main PC - a reasonably powerful machine. At the moment it is going through major instability and its time for a reformat. Being a student, I can use Windows Server 2008R2 for free under the Microsoft Dreamspark programme.
I'm trying to figure out if I should install as a desktop OS. I'm wondering if I'd get any benefits out of using it over Vista. I was thinking that:
- It'd be more stable then Vista
- It would have the Win 7 Stuff (which is in R2) without me having to get Win 7
- Teach me to use the system
Would it be worthwhile doing? Or too much bother for what it is? Thanks for any advice
