Win 7 server

Does Microsoft have a server version of Windows 7? I haven't tried looking; just wondering if its available.

There's Windows 7 Enterprise which is built for businesses but it's really just a version of Windows 7 which supports multiple licenses and what not. I think they're called VLKs.

The real Server operating system is Windows Server 2008 R2. You can check it out on the Microsoft website.

Windows Server 2008 R2 Operating System

If you're looking for a server operating system you could purchase 2008 R2 but most people use Linux instead. It takes a bit of work to learn how to use it, but it's a bit more stable and way more widely used. There are lots of Distro's available. The most popular are versions of Redhat.
