"There are 5000 developers on the Windows team generating over 50 million lines of code for Windows Server 2003. It's an enormous task, the biggest software engineering task ever attempted. There are no other software projects like this."I think the 2003 is going to set a new level with the Windows Server OS. Microsoft is shelling out the big bucks to make this one of the most stable and impressive OS yet.NT Timeline

Personally, they outdid them selves with Windows 2000. As scary as everyone was about installing the server to their Live servers, I jump at the chance. As soon as, W2K Pro was out, I have a legit copy in my hands testing FoxPro databases performances while reindexing thousands of records. It was obviously a faster and stable OS. I think with XML being called out as one of the most extensible languages for the web, 2003 should once again impress the IT industry. As much as people like to knock down M$, we are all pretty much are their products. Sure, they have their issue, but so does everyone else.
I purely support this new OS for servers, like hell, don't you like performance and stability?
Anyway, just wanted to chat about this whole Windows 2003 operating system.
