I am thinking about getting Mountain Lion Server.


I have two Macs running Mountain Lion and am thinking of installing Server onto one of them. The price is certainly right, my main concern is whether or not I'll be able to use the Server machine as a "regular" Mac. For example, can I read my mail, write documents in Word and Pages, develop iOS apps in XCode, run Windows under Parallels and surf the web?


If this is so, are there any limitations?

MacBook Pro, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.2)
