    Not sure what you are asking here.

    If you are asking if you can run Macs on a network run by a Windows server as a hub; then sure, you can do that with no problem.

    If you are asking if you can run Mac OS on a Windows server; then no, you can't do that as it is not possible.

    why whouldn't you just get an xserve? if you want to use the windows server, see here: http://www.apple.com/macosx/features/windows/
