    I am looking into the existence of 'Longhorn Server'. I have been
    instructed that this exists that it differs from Vista. I thought that the
    Longhorn line has died and was replaced by Vista. In the Windows Server site
    they have a Longhorn server site that calls Vista its 'client'. In MSDN I
    only see longhorn Professional.

    Can someone clarify this for me and show me were there is (if there is) a
    server side product in the Longhorn/Vista line. It would also be helpful for
    a definition of how Microsoft uses the word 'client' with the Longhorn/Vista

  2. Rob;
    Everything used to be Longhorn.
    They split when the final name for the client was named Vista,
    The server is still code named Longhorn with no date given when the official
    name will be determined or publicized.

    Vista is the client while Longhorn is the server.
    If you have access to MSDN, the download is the same.
    The key used determines which is installed.
    If you use a Vista key, you install Vista.
    If you use a Longhorn key, you install Longhorn Server.

    Is the "code base" united with the Longhorn Server code base then? I ask
    because while the Windows XP and Windows Server code bases were disengaged
    from each other, so to speak, the Windows XP Pro 64 and Windows Vista were
    supposed to have been code based on the Server code base, in a sense
    reuniting them.
