    I use VMWare Workstation v8 (latest build) under Windows 8 x64 RP. I have Windows 8 x64 RP, Windows 7 x64 (both kept fully updated), Windows Server 2012 RC, I might have an XP SP3 install somewhere. I have MacOS X v10.6.3, and ... Windows for Workgroups 3.11 running on top of MS-DOS v6.22. I have installed in WFW 3.11 TCP/IP support, Win32s, MS Word v2.0, MS Excel v4.0 and MS Powerpoint v3.0, IE v2.0 (I've also had IE v3.01 and 5.01 installed), NCSA Mosaic versions 0.6, 1.0 and 2.1.

    Tried to find and install an old Adobe Acrobat Reader, but didn't find a working one yet. Might sometime install the last Windows 3.1 version of Opera, I think it might have been v3.62.

    So is this one of those threads where we're supposed to brag about how much stuff we have? If so, here goes. :D

    At my house lives a Core i7 with 24GB and two 250GB and two 1TB drives (RAID1 arrays) running Windows Server 2008R2 datacenter with Hyper-V.

    All production machines are Windows Server 2008R2:
    - two Active Directory domain controllers (a third DC is running on its own physical machine, a little Core2duo)
    - Exchange 2010 server
    - SQL 2012 server with WSUS for local network
    - Application/Terminal server with MS Office 2010 and other apps
    I haven't built yet but have in plans:
    - Web server with Sharepoint
    - System Center

    At any time, I have four or more non-production testing, evaluating, whatever machines running other flavours of Windows or Linux.

    At my work is a nice SuperMicro machine with dual Xeon E5-2609, 64GB (and still half the slots open!), with 6 1TB drives (hot swap) in three mirrors. Much the same kind of setup as home, but on a larger faster scale for actual corporate usage of 50+ users.

    24GB of non-ECC RAM in a single machine is nothing to brag about :) Running so much memory without any protection (registered, ECC) is asking for trouble, especially if you fully utilize it most of the time. Statistical memory errors become quite a reality, even if most of them go unnoticed because they occur in non-critical parts of the system.

    But you can never be sure about any data you process on this system.

    The work machine is the right way to go. Don't be cheap if your data is of any value. I run a single E5-2609 at home with 32GB reg ECC.

    I have on my iMac (VMWare Fusion 5): Windows Server 2008 R2 Enterprise (domain controller), Windows Server 2008 R2 Standard Edition (Terminal Server), 2 Windows 7 Enterprise x86 clients for domain and 2 Windows XP Professional for domain. This is my lab as I am training to be Microsoft Certified Enterprise Administrator.

    On my PC I have Workstation 8 and it is running Ubuntu Server and it is my internal web server.

    Regards,
    Timin

    Very interesting stuff, i keep reading about setups like this. I really need to build a machine dedicated to running some VM's.
    It would be great to learn about Windows Server 2012 this way, i might look in to the cost of doing this :)
