Picking a version of Windows 2003 Server?

4 posts in this topic

I don't need any advanced features, and I see that there's actually a thread on converting the server version to a desktop.

I want the extra processors support that Win2k doesn't have natively, and the better driver support for newer hardware.

I have multiple versions of Windows Server to use as upgrade discs, going back to NT 3.51, NT 4, Windows 2000 Server and Windows 2000 Advanced Server, so I could do an upgrade package if any such exists for Windows 2003 server.

Thanks in advance for ideas / links to discussion topics.

Probably either Standard or Enterprise. Standard has a maximum RAM of 4GB tho.

Feature Comparison

Tripredacus: Is the 64-bit version a bugfest? No driver support? Just checking.

Not in my experience. Make sure your hardware is compatible with it to be sure, although I've run Server 2003 Standard on non-server hardware without a problem.
