XP Mode on W2008 Server R2

Hi all
Souinds crazy I know but is it piossible to run XP mode on W2008 server.

Presumably if this works remote clients can then login and get similar advantages to people running this on Windows 7 desktops.

I've got a feeling however that there probably would be problems with the VHD being used concurrently by multiple users.

(The best way of using W2008 server with virtual machines is to use something like vmware server -- however I was just curious to see if XP mode would theoretically work on W2008 server).

Cheers

if i remember correctly App-V is business version of XP mode (thinking of it as a compatibility standpoint) for logging in users though i believe Hyper-V is the option...
XP mode per say i dont think will run in server 2008...
