My professor just gave me a copy of Windows Server 2008 Enterprise edition courtesy of Microsoft to mess around with. I stumbled across this site and decided to try it… Best decision ever. I am literally blown away by the difference in performance. Sadly, I only have the x86 version of Server 2008. Is there a big performance difference between that and the x64 version on a quad core with 8GB of memory? Still a little surprised that the 32bit version reads all 8GB of ram. Thanks in advance.
Also, is there a way to disable all the server features in Server 2008?
