Hi, Jorge, isn't it so coincidental that I just posted a message that is

My *opinion* to you.

Try out the server edition in your nice new machines, after all, that's 
what it's for. Don't install gui. If you give up, then install a gui to 
your liking (you can remove it later). There are some advantages of 
server edition with gui than desktop edition, dns, etc, but nothing that 
should worry you, though. Go for it.

ps1: let us know how it goes, we can learn from you.
ps2: any links to operations research? (i think it's called game theory now)
