But there is a standard version and an enterprise version. The enterprise version, also free, supports two processors and more, as far as I know. And in addition Release 2 and SP1 make a difference to the originally issued version. You may want to give that a try now.

The race for quality has no finish line- so technically, it's more like a death march.

Will the Enterprise version allow you to run Windows 2000? The latest version of VPC 2007 will not allow you to install Windows 2000 (only XP and up). I suspect MS will do the same thing with either Server 2005 or the next release. And what about the latest version of Solaris?

SP1 supports the latest Solaris version, if I remember well. As well as SLES 10 (Novell's Suse Linux Enterprise Server).
