I'm a bit late to this thread, but I'll offer my ideas anyway. After you build this server, will you be the one looking after it or will it be someone else? Also, does the laser cutter program have a restriction on licensing? If not, you could install VirtualBox on each work PC/laptop and create a VM for XP, then install the laser cutter program. The other way would be to run the XP VM on the server and RDP into it, but I don't know if XP supports that.
