Still many people uses 32 bit PC in all parts of the world. And Microsoft would have lost there Netbook software market share completely and some Pc software market shares, and cant afford it.

so if I was going to install this on a sever, should I get the Server 2008 R2 RTM, or just the Server 2008 with SP2 regular download from my technet account.

is this R2 RTM the same as the 7 RTM, as in it's the final product and will be same as the GA version.

Yes, this is the final version of 2008 R2. I would go ahead and throw it on to a server. I was using some of the earlier builds, and they were rock solid.

Hi guys
already got it from technet and installed R2 version (Enterprise)
Works a treat.

Note however if you are using it as a HOME server and want to access it remotely you don't need any CAL licenses for up to 2 concurrent administrative sessions.

1) ensure your user is in the ADMINISTRATORS GROUP
2) start your remote session with the following switch
mtsc.exe /admin

If you don't do this you'll get a message License server can't be found 119 days of grace left (you get 120 so it counts down).

I use W2008 server to run a load of VM's so I don't need any CAL licenses.
RDP in admin mode is fine.

Cheers
jimbo
