I am currently using Win2k right now. I myself cannot really see a
difference between the workstation or server version of win2k. The one
observation I do have is that if the clients do not need to be on a win2k
domain, or really do not even need the features of a server, workstation
would be best and cheaper. A server is more expensive and will require
licenses for the 4 seats. The workstation will work just fine for firebird
and you don't have to worry about licenses for the 4 clients. Just my
thoughts, hope it helps.
