Can win 7 be user as an application server? Meaning, I want to place an application software on a server so users can access from their desktop.

Not all software plays nicely as a network install. But, since you'll need to buy a licence for each user, isn't it easier to just install the software on each PC? It's not as if disk space is a problem nowadays.

Your recommendation is well taken. Would you use Server R8 as a data server or just use Win 7?

If you just want to serve data to a small group of people Windows 7 will be fine.
