Thanks for the suggestion about server workspaces. The team project collection option for setting the default workspace is only meant as a guideline for users. If you want to change the type of your own workspace, that option is available from the workspace settings dialog (available through Source Control Explorer). It is currently "by design" that users with local workspaces are not prompted to switch to server workspaces when the default is changed. We do this because we feel that Local workspaces are the better option for most teams/users.

Thanks,
Matt
