Another "help me decide" thread smile.gif

I am in the process of deciding on which Windows 7 x64 version to use for an upcoming server build. I have both a Win7 Home Premium license and a Win7 Pro license. Would one be better than the other for use as a server OS? Thanks for reading and for any responses.

Probably Pro but both would work.

I think PRO supports remote desktop without any hacking. You'd need to hack the home version. That's a good feature for a server IMO.

Use PRO.
