What I would like to do is this:

At my office we have many machines with different hardware and we always have to fight against configuring each one for different printers.

Is there a way to have only one server and make that all clients use like different desktops or remote desktop so that all the configuration is present only in one place.

Windows server can do this. – CanSpice Apr 5 '11 at 18:14
You are describing exactly what a "server" does. Time to read up and figure out what you need, how much you can spend, and who will set it up for you. – echarnley Apr 6 '11 at 0:44
thanks for the help, actually I want to learn how to do it, so the easy question would be: what is the name of the feature im looking for? is it remote desktop, active directory, etc. does anyone know where should I start? – mongaru Apr 6 '11 at 14:10
Adjusted your question to prevent it from being closed, asking "how do Windows server works?" is really to broad and not answerable so I focused on "getting the configuration of your clients centralized", if that wording is incorrect please feel free to correct it. Can you describe your goal with details/examples? Welcome to Super User! :) – Tom Wijsman Apr 6 '11 at 15:23
thanks Tom, ok my idea is this, I would like users to use a desktop of my server (something like thin clients), this way I only have to configure drivers and stuff on my server and not on every single machine. Is this posible with some windows server? – mongaru Apr 6 '11 at 17:59
