Well recently I installed Windows server 2003..
I'm in chock surprised...
This OS perform fantastic Better memory use.. Ultra stable, faster tcp/ip stack than xp, and has a drive cache boost under drive properties/hardware, that is not available in xp or 2k.
To me right now it may be the best kernel for games or sims.
It out perform my XP PRO.... incredible.. faster load better FPS ... !!!what a chock!!!! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_eek.gif
You can add more CPU's to 2K3
Most XP drivers work on server 2003. Also Server 2003 is younger than XP.

Anyone else has it?

A lot of people use 2003 as it's probably the last best windoze server software.

Been multi booting XP, 2003 and Vista (I have a MS Technet subscription) for quite some time.

Never considered using 2003 for gaming though, primarily because I couldn't get my MSFFB2 stick to work - didn't really try though.

Your link and comments however have motivated me to give this a shot!

Anyway, yes it rocks, I never looked back for another MS product after I installed this baby, and I'm not interested in Vista either, maybe I'll look into Windows Server 2008 http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

I've looked at this, and while it IS possible to use it as a workstation OS, normal antivirus programmes such as Norton won't work on 2003- you need a corporate version (which is probably a lot more expensive). Antivir won't run on it either. This disqualifies it for use as workstation in my opinion, though I do like its virtues.

Well I use NOD32 as antivirus which is quite cheap and works.
As for the firewall, Sygate Personal Firewal(which I would use anyway) works and it's FREE.

You do realize that vista is primarily based on 2003, don't you?
