Hi people :)
PovRay is one of the most important programs I am using WindowsServer2003 for.
The system  is almost fully XP-compatible, but has the ability to support up to
64GB RAM and 16 Cores. Still it's a 32BIT-Version of Windows, means that every
running  Program can use 4GB Ram only. And it runs XP-Compatible programs ONLY!

Rendering with older versions of PovRay means, running lots  and lots of
instances, each rendering another frame for example.

Within WindowsServer2003 I am running  the following versions of Povray:
PovRay3.1-MegaPOV 0.7
PovRay3.5 Dens
PovRay3.6 Mc
PovRay3.6-MegaPOV 1.2.1

All these version are in use and there running BECAUSE of an old version of
Windows! If a newer version of Povray would NOT run it, I won't be able to use

Please continue running PovRay on XP!

Thanx a lot!
:) Holger
