That is not correct either. Any OS can be classified as a server. If a
computer is "serving" content whether its a web page or Active
Directory it is a "server". So Windows XP can be a server, just not
the type of server that Windows 2003 Server can be (Active Directory,
File, Print, Sharepoint, etc etc). You can setup Windows XP to be a
HTTP server and it could power a website just as capable as Windows
2003 Server.

So remember. Server  = ANY type of OS as long as it is SERVING (get
it?) content.
