Jesus H. Christ on a pogo stick, this has nothing to do with Microsoft, 
or at least nothing that Microsoft has been doing in the last few years. 
Or have you managed to miss the fact that just about every server 
product they've been putting out in the last few years provides the 
management console as a separate component of the installation, so you 
can install them on a *management workstation* and not require expensive 
graphics hardware on your server?

I guess everyone really *is* a user at heart.
