The question here (How can I make Windows Server 2012 R2 like Windows 8.1?) is being downvoted by several people because they don't think it is a good idea, although it is a clear question. What can I do to get users to provide an objective answer instead of just looking at the subjective nature?
A little history behind the question:
- I have a laptop with a custom install of Windows 7. I wanted to put Windows 8.1 onto it, but it costs $200 (too expensive). Since I am a student, I am entitled to a free license to Windows Server 2008 and higher and $80 for Windows 8.1. I went with the former and installed it dual-boot on my laptop.
- However, I encountered several problems post installation that I would like to fix, so I posted that question.
- Many people think that it is a bad idea to run Windows Server on a laptop (although it is possible due to the battery meter and power plans available), but I want an objective answer.
