not much of a windows person but someone saw me turn on a computer once so now I'm the expert.
Here's my question. Can a Windows 2008R2 Enterprise box be used as a workstation -also-? I know conceptually it's a bad idea, but are there technical or performance reasons that it won't work?
Apps would be things like Thunderbird, Firefox, Quickbooks Pro, Illustrator, MS Office, Adobe Contribute, a Filemaker Pro client, plus a couple of other minor things that escape my mind right now.
The 'server' activities on the box are lightly loaded. AD domain server, some file serving, and term services mostly.
