    I am going to have a Server with 1 Processor, I will have host OS Linux to run my VirtualBox, and them I will create about 8 Windows 2003 Virtual Servers for testing purpose.

    Now, I know that we need to buy license for every Windows 2003 virtual machines. However, if I check here http://www.microsoft.com/windowsserver2003/howtobuy/licensing/calc_2.htm Since my host server has 1 Processor buying Datacenter edition will allow me to run any number of VM’s

    My question is:

    What is the difference between 2003 Std edition and Datacenter Edition. In principal I need 2003 Std edition to run my applications.
