I have bought a dedicated server from OVH. It is pretty powerful machine with 32gb ram. I will use it solely by connecting with remote desktop and configure/run windows based seo software (e.g. GSA, magic submitter etc.). I will not use it for hosting or for any other purpose. OVH does not offer desktop operating systems such as windows 7. It offers Windows server 2008 and 2012. Since I dont need any server functionality and i had doubts for running seo software on windows server 2012, I installed ubuntu on the machine. Then using virtualbox, i installed windows 7. Now i am connecting to the windows 7 VM using remote desktop to run seo software. I gave as much ram as possible to the windows 7 VM but i am still wondering whether i made a good or bad decision by choosing this route. What do you think? Should i remove ubuntu and install windows server 2008/2012 to use the machine with its full potential? Do you have any experience running SEO software on windows server editions? Do these softwares support window server editions? Thanks for answers.
