Windows Server 2003 single license

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
How would I go about getting a single license of Windows Server 2003? All I can find are box sets of 5-20 licenses. I would like to use Windows Server 2003 as a super stable host for linux vm servers. Reason I'm not using some distro of linux as the host is because I still like to play dx9 games.

Any opinions would be great.

If you are legitimately going to be doing development work and such, then I suggest signing up for the Microsoft ActionPack. Basically, you, as a developer, get many thousands of dollars of Microsoft software, for a fraction of the retail price. (Like, only a few hundred dollars)

I would like a lot of things, but i doubt you would get me any of them. Im ordering C2D parts Thursday. Id like an 8800GTS though, or better . Dont plan on getting that until later.

Make me an offer i can't refuse.
