Default Windows Server Questions

At work our current setup is we have 1 Main Server which is hosting our databases and runs Windows XP Home and then we have 6 other PC's.Now because of the Connection Limit of 5 PC's XP home isnt cutting it anymore,now im considering Windows XP pro but im wondering if Server '03 would be better!

So im wondering how does the licensing work with server? Could i simply buy this:


Install it on the server and be done with it? Or do i need a License for each user?

Desktop:BitFenix Survivor~Gigabyte GA-P67A-UD3R~ i7 2600K @ 4hz~AMD 6870 1GB~12gb Team Elite DDR3 1333~3xWD In RAID5~W7 Ult
Laptop:Alienware M11x~ i7-2637M 1.7GHz~16GB 1333MHz DDR3~GeForce GT 540M~W7 Ult

Windows Server is insanely expensive. Why not just go with Linux, or Solaris, or BSD?
