Is there a Win XP SERVER edition?

I keep seeing Pro and Home versions on the xp homepage, but is there a server version to put on servers with all the IIS, Domain Controller features?

Thanks

I think it's called Win2K Server.

As X said, at least for now it is Windows 2000 Server. Windows.NET server (or whatever they decide to call it) is still in development.

Here is some more info. Click this link .

Basically the web page doesn't tell you much. Usuall MS FUD. Tell everyone the next great thing is a few months away to keep people interested. They are some good business people. They see trends and make strategy years out. They then keep the strategy a secret until the last possible moment.

The server family of Windows XP will be called Windows .NET Server and Windows .NET Advanced Server. (I have the CDs sitting next to me, build 3541.)

Selected technical beta testers have been receieving server builds about once every two months, but now that XP Home Edition and Pro have long since gone gold, the server family's beta test will go full force.
