    Upgrading a Windows server currently running 2000. What are the pros and cons of Server 2003 vs 2008?

    We've got about a dozen workstations running XP and about 50 AD members.

    W2K8 > W2K3

    I can't honestly think of any reason why I wouldn't use W2K8 over W2K3 unless you're like us and only have CALs for W2K3.

    :werd: Server 08 shits all over 03 in a LOT of ways. Much easier to work with from an administrator's perspective.

    Only reason besides licensing (SA is :bowdown: BTW) I wouldn't use it is if you have custom applications that can't run on anything but 03.
