    Yeah it's definetly a good server! By far the best M$ server available. Now when I say server I mean SERVER and definetly NOT for desktop usage. Trust me I had bluescreens when trying to play BF1942 when I had it installed (BF1942 blows anyway :hammer: ) But like I was saying for a desktop system the best current M$ OS that's out for desktop computing is XP Pro w/ SP1, or XP Media Center Edition (Same exact thing but w/ MCE applet) Yea so it definetly is an excellent server!

    Are you sick of poor quality 128k mp3's that sound inferior to regular CD's you buy in the store? Do you long for the exact sound of a CD with absolutly no quality loss, and at practically half the size of a normal CD? CD's get scratched all the time, and FLAC is great for archiving all those good copies of your classic rock, and backing them up to save forever. FLAC unlike mp3, or ogg vorbis is what is called a lossless format. This means that no quality whatsoever is lost from the origianl disk. Lossy formats such as ogg vorbis, wmv, and moreover mp3 are usually flat sounding, and full of hissing and dullness because they discard and literally throw out important information that controls how good the CD will sound. Using FLAC will ensure the crystal-clear clarity that you can expect from a freshly opened CD. Instead of flimsy CD cases that snap and CD's that scratch easily, and are inevitably summoned to a poor scratched up death; FLAC files can be stored in a tough metal box known as your Hard Disk. FLAC putting life back into digital audio. If you own legit copies of CD's and seek for them pre-FLAC'd for all your digital listening needs please shoot me a PM for more information.

    yes i meant server, we got a server at work taht we havent put to use yet and was wonderin if i should bother puttin 2003 on it, if it was gonna be **** or unstable i wouldnt bother cause each format of this server takes overnight.

    and i said rc cause the rc is the only one i got on cd with aplicable licenses. but if it works good we will prolly get the proper one

    Windows 2003 is the best M$ server choice b/c it's definetly the FASTEST, most stable, and most secure OOTB M$ OS you can buy ATM. I would say it's worth the upgrade, but thats if the $$$$ doesn't kill you ;)
