Which is the best Windows version to use with FMPSA 12

Hello,

The System Requiement for Filemaker Server 12 advanced on Windows allow following operating systems :

 

Windows 7 Professionel Edition SP1 (32-bit)

Windows Server 2008 Standard Edition SP2 (32-bit)

Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1 (64-bit)

Windows 7 Professional Edition SP1 (64-bit)

Windows Server 2008 Standard Edition SP2 (64-bit)

Windows Server 2003 R2 SP2 (32-bit)

 

I want to use FMPSA 12 to serve several databases that can be accessed by FMP12, CWP and IWP through LAN and Internet.

 

I would choose for a 64-bit operating system (faster!), but can anybody tell me why I should invest in Windows Server 2008 instead of Windows 7 professional. Is Windows Server 2008 more stable, faster???.... I just want the safest, fastest and best solution.

 

Thank you,

 

Marc
