    I recently attended a seminar held by a MS Gold Partner. During the
    discussion he eluded to a comment that Advanced server is the OS of choice
    if you have servers w/ Xeon Processors. However I cannot find anything on
    MS's Site reguarding benefits of Advanced over Standard when dealing with
    Processors. There's pleanty of differences with Memory, which I understand
    but with the Processor itself???

    i'm not sure what that is referring to either
    the only difference with processors between standard/enterprise that i've
    seen is the number supported

    The Gold, Platinum, Diamond Partners as such just ruin the MS reputation.
    OTOH, those partners and MS itself are the same human beings as you, me, and
    any John Doe. Remember that every new Windows version has been crashing
    during its presentation by BG.

  4. John,

    While there are functional differences between the Standard and Enterprise
    Editions of Windows Server 2003
    see
    http://www.microsoft.com/windowsserver2003/evaluation/features/compareeditions.mspx

    There are no differences in the actual usage of the CPUs or the requirement
    to prefer one edition over the other due to CPU family choice (XEON vs. P4
    etc)

    Well depending on your opinion of the speaker, they either made a honest
    mistake, or they get more comission from their employer depending on what
    you buy ;-)
