Diff: Windows 2000 Vs Windows server 2003

Whats the difference between Windows 2000 and Windows server 2003
crdowner
There are lots of differences - too many to list even.

2003 has an XP-like interface. Windows Server 2003 Enterprise changes clustering a bit by having the software installed by default. With Windows 2000 Advanced Server, you had to install Windows Clustering.

2003 is supposed to be more secure than 2000.
2003 manages resources better than 2000.

The list goes on and on. Check www.microsoft.com/windows for more differences.

Windows 2000 and Windows 2003 both have Terminal Services. TS must be installed for Windows 2000. If you want to use TS just for remote administration, you select the appropriate option when prompted. Under Windows 2003, you do not need to install TS for remote administration. Instead you enable remote administration by right-clicking on My Computer and going to the Remote tab.

That's funny because Microsoft's servers are run by Windows 2000.

Basicly, 2003 server is much much more linux-like.
Expecialy in the security and stability areas; they do some copycating of unix file permissions and kernel (, which gives it better stability: if 2003 gets a bsod, it's almost certainly a hardware failure).
Don't get me wrong; it is still very much a windows OS, but hardcore linux-users would find less to complain about in it.
