Can any one say what is the difference between the Desktop edition and server edition of Linux ( such as Fedora Desktop and Fedora server edition ).

1) Server Linux usually does not have the X-Windows GUI installed

For which application the server edition is needed?

In reality, there is no difference between server and desktop Linux versions, other than the packages that are installed by default and whether or not a GUI is installed. You can easily configure a desktop version to handle whatever server duties you need, and vice-versa.
