Please dont laugh, because i have only ever used a webserver, as a server, in a datacenter...
my question is,
i have an actual 1u server, lying around not doing anything, with quite good specs.
im also in need of a desktop pc, as mine has almost had it...
so here is my question, as you would already have guessed by now.
if i wanted to, could i hook the server up to my monitor as you would a desktop, and install a desktop operating system on it, windows or linux, and use the server the same way i would a desktop??
it was just a question, i just thought i would ask before i tried anything? would it work the same as it would if i used a proper pc?
is there any pro's or con's to doing this?
my guess would be this would work fine, but i though i had better check before i attempt anything. if not its just going to get stripped down for parts.
Thanks in advance.
