    Running windows apps on a windows server?


    This is a newb question, something I was curious about is whether or not you could run native windows apps on a windows server...

    If so, this could have a lot of potential uses...

    Just wondering, any feedback would be nice.

    You can certainly *run* native windows apps from a windows server.. but they're not accessible to the "outside world" like a website is... huge difference.

    If you "remote into" the server, you log on it just like it's your local PC. And you can run apps. But you have to be a trusted user, probably have VPN, etc.
