How many CPU sockets will WHS 2011 recognize?

The memory limit of 12 GB is strange, and SUCKS.

 

Well, i really am hard pressed to figure out anything on a *home* server that would require more than 8 GB of ram. Thus, out of curiosity what were you going to do with your box?

 

edit: actually it appears to be 8 GB, not 12 but my question still stands.

Yes I meant 8. Sorry for the confusion.

 

I will be using my current desktop that already has 12 GB and don't want to go backwards. Also, if I am streaming movies to multiple devices it might be useful. I guess with virtualization I won't have that limit though. I guess another pro for virtualiztion.

I don't think going from 8 to 12GB of RAM is going to improve streaming. You are probably going to run out of disk or network throughput first, or if you are transcoding, probably going to run out of CPU.

Insert another drive and move the page file over to it if you need some more "virtual memory".
