"oh cool"

 

yeah linux now supports up to 4096 procesors, 16x more than windows server.

 

but who really cares? xp supports 32 and about 0.0001% of systems have a quarter of that many cores. (pretty much only i7 and skulltrail systems)

Ha, I'm sure it could tear up games but I don't think my office is big enough for a box that houses 64 PROCESSORS! Good god. That's like saying the engine in my Jeep Liberty can provide power to 84 wheels.

Am I missing something here? Can you have one Server OS that controls like 20 servers at once or what?

i mean what i said, some older version of windows server coult play game period. It would be like installing Crysis on a 98 box "this version of windows not supported"

im guessing that it would play games really well. i am running server 2008 on my desktop and it is noticably faster than vista. almost all games work on server 2008 so when R2 comes out i will be switching to that for my gaming machine.
