    Ok i managed to buy on eBay tonight a HP XW4400 workstation in which once i have it in my clutches max the storage on it. But my dilemma is this :

    I own :
    1 x Mac Mini Server i7 with a 1Tb Hard Drive and 8Gb Memory
    2 x Apple TV Gen 3
    1 x Apple Airport Express (Connected to Sky Router)
    1 x Apple Airport Extreme
    1 x Apple Time Capsule

    My Objective :

    So the Workstation i bought tonight i want to use in conjunction with the Apple Mac Mini Server in which is being the iTunes server for the Apple TVs.

    My Problem :

    Not knowing what to use for an operating system for the Workstation and once i have decided will i be able use the Mac Mini Server to use the workstation to get the iTunes data i will store on it.

    The Ideas for the Operating System im not sure on using :

    Microsoft Server 2003 or 2008

    or do i use something else ?
