Windows 7: Any reasons not to use Win7 as a print server rather than Win Srv 2k8?

Any reasons not to use Win7 as a print server rather than Win Srv 2k8?

Hi guys

Does anyone see a problem with using Win 7 as a print server as opposed to using Win Server 2008. On the domain the potential print server would only have 3 or 4 printers on it. I feel it maybe a bit excessive (cost wise) to buy a Win Server license for only 4 printers.

Thanks
