    Was on the Beta team.

    Ran great, nice and fast in comparison to a default Win2K Server install.

    The setup tools looked rather re-vamped.

    No support for 16-Bit Ethernet cards meant I had to go out and replace my 2x 3Com Etherlink III cards and 2x SN 2000 Compatibile ones... That sorta sucked, but $80 later I had it all setup and going on my home-network :-) (Dont ask why I actually bought 4x NIC's, I only needed to have one... )

    For a windows system, it was good, stable, but definately not for anything but being a server. I tried updating nVidia drivers which failed, and none of my soundcards worked...

    Lets just say that if I wasnt a Linux user, Id say it was way better than all its predecessors, with a lot of extra Terminal Server functionality.

    Hope this helps


    Chill.

    *Please note that I havent used it since rc3... around 11 months back*

    The bits what I have seen of it, it looks good.

    The only problem which we had was trying to get Windows 2003 server to network :_| , we did Not had much luck getting it to networking and we gave up with it…..

    Good luck with it, if you do install it.

    Note: I think we where running the Enterprise Edition of Windows Server 2003.

    I'm maintaining a few production installs of 2003 and seems to run very well in a MS sense. Very stable, pretty much 2000 with bells, whistles and wizards. Works fine in a mixed ( Linux ) and Native ( Windows ) environments. The only downside I have run into so far is with the Domain and Forest Prep you need to do when you put it in a 2000 domain, it seems to break OWA for Exchange 2000, Exchange 2003 works great on it.
