      I honestly can’t think of a single thing that XP can do and R2 cannot.

      16-Bit (“Legacy”) Apps is the only thing that I can think of, but those could most likely run in a Windows XP Virtual Machine if need to. Most people don’t need to use 16-Bit apps as far as I know. 16-Bit apps won’t run because R2 is 64-Bit only – make sure your computer can handle it. Run SecurAble if you are not sure.

      Ah yes, good point. Additionally, a few 32-bit apps might have 16-bit installers.

      Can windows server 2008 R2 totally replace the Windows XP that I have on my laptop? I came across this while looking st Windows 7 and would like to switch to a newer OS, and since I’m a student, I can get a free key so I prefer to upgrade to Windows Server 2008 R2 rather than windows 7 (also because I heard/read some articles that it would be better to buy a new PC with windows 7). Can anyone give me more info/ opinion on this?
