Howmany of you are using windows server 2012 as a desktop OS. Please let me know.

what is the goal of this ? What advantage ?
I am thinking to install it as my primary OS.So looking for some advice before i do.
My guess? Easier activation?
Yep, you can do it for OA2.2 and native ReFS...
Here are some mods to setup W2012 as W8:
But unfortunately, there is no known successful OA 2.2 activation with 2012 yet
I use it as my primary OS because there is no RTM RSAT for Windows 8 yet.
RSAT is not RTM yet, but this works. http://forums.mydigitallife.net/threads/37182-RSAT-for-Windows-8-RP
Are you going to run DCPROMO and turn your workstation Server into a Workstation DC ?
I may try Server again on my Lenovo T400 since I can't use Hyper-V from Windows 8 on it without running the server version which doesn't have the one hardware restriction. I'll see how it runs.
Although for completely different reason (which I will not explain, to save your time), I've found your post very useful. Thanks.
Great! Glad it was useful to you and I hope to others. I can add one more advantage for Server; I have had trouble with Window 8 and my dLink Wi-Fi adapter. It connects upon startup but then disconnects and I have to manually reconnect it. On the other hand, although I am triple booting with the same hardware, I don't have that problem with Server; I connect on startup and it stays connected.
You still need SLAT to run Hyper-V on server.
Hmph! Did I misread some information somewhere?
No, you don't need SLAT on Server 2012. It's only required on Windows 8 because running without it can cripple graphics performance in a way that would be unacceptable for workstation use.
You will be able to run Hyper-V, but you may not want to.
i have a dreamspark account. So hope i get a license for windows server 2012.
