    Oh dear Ms whats the point of Ms Games on a SERVER !! (W2K19)


    Hi there
    Ok you can add desktop experience to W2K19 server but I really don't see why games should be added automatically on to a professional server -- perhaps the servers at Ms are these days busy because people playing Spider solitaire on them !!!

    Nothing wrong with playing things like spider solitaire --great at boring meetings etc but shouldn't this stuff be better left to standard Windows on users own laptops.

    (You can of course use W2K19 server as a desktop - but in that case it should be up to you to choose what to install - as I've added some apps myself in the screenshot below. I certainly didn't want the Ms games !!!).

    Is MS reconciling with the PC Gaming Community?

    What !?? Games For Windows didn't prove to you that MS was serious about PC gaming? /sarc

    Actions speak louder than words. So step up to the plate, Microsoft, or STFU.
