Microsoft's Windows 10 nagware storms live TV weather forecast


Re: Oh, yeah...

I think you mean workstation, not server. And anything older than Windows 7 is not supported, even though the nagware appears and runs on Vista, aka twisted sister.

If indeed you ARE driving large numbers of displays, the server versions of the older OS's (XP and dare I say win2k) are only useful in the amount of memory they support, and the number of physical processors they allow. However the newer profi graphics cards won't run in equipment old enough to have been home

to the Datacenter or Enterprise servers of the XP and 2K timeframe. And good luck with the protected media path and HDCP on those...
