Windows Server 2003 is a surprisingly full-featured release, but because it builds on the strong base of Windows 2000 Server, it will be a simple in-place upgrade for those customers. Thanks to its new upgrade features, it should also prove to be a simpler upgrade for the large crowd of NT 4.0 Server holdouts, though we'll have to test that functionality before passing final judgment.
