[PLUG] Ubuntu desktop vs server kernel

Does anyone know the significant differences between the Ubuntu Hardy 
linux-generic and linux-server kernels?

apt-cache show linux-generic linux-server:
	"This package will always depend on the latest complete..."
		"generic Linux kernel available"
		"Linux kernel available for Server Equipment"

...doesn't tell me a whole lot.  Is it really just different hardware 
support?  Or is there other tuning?

My use-case is an Xubuntu desktop used solely for running VMware 
Workstation, but it does live on a Dell PE850 1u server chassis.

"Microsoft Tax" = the additional hardware & yearly fees for the add-on
software required to protect Windows from its own poorly designed and
implemented self, while the overhead incidentally flattens Moore's Law.
