I heard a rumor that of you use a "server motherboard" with multiple sockets then that somehow forces you to use windows server rather than ordinary windows, is that true? Why would that be?
I had this motherboard in mind: http://uk.asus.com/product.aspx?P_ID=0dOUj0Ts5XBBxUJ6
I was planning to plug in a couple of xeon processors and run it with windows 7 professional. Could that work?
EDIT: Sorry, I should have phrased that as "I heard a rumor that of you use a 'server motherboard' with two sockets then that somehow forces you to use windows server rather than windows professional". I already know that standard windows only handles one CPU and you need windows professional to handle 2 CPUs.
