Summary: If you lived through the change from NT 4 Server to Windows 2000 Server, then you might be a bit gun-shy about Windows Server 2003. You may ask, what does Server 2003 offer that earlier NT 4 and Windows 2000 Server didn't? Is it worth the upgrade? Will it "play well" with NT 4 and Windows 2000-based domains? This book has these answers and more.
