Windows 2000 and 2003: What is the difference?

Expert Laura E. Hunter outlines the major upgrades Windows Server 2003 has over its predecessor, Windows Server 2000.

Could you briefly outline for me what the major differences are between Windows Server 2003 and Windows Server 2000?

Windows Server 2003 has made a number of improvements over Windows 2000, particularly in the area of security and Active Directory internals. I've written two articles on this topic, one analyzing the differences between Windows 2000 and 2003, and another discussing the changes brought about by Windows Server 2003 SP1.
