Not to mention that it is "hotfixed" out of the box.  It includes windows
2003 SP1 and I'm sure it will include a number of other hotfixes.
Our windows 2000 build has so many hotfixes it would be a blessing to get a
build with only a handful of OS patches.

R2 will not add extra Terminal Services functionality...

But when you're building / deploying new servers why won't you use the
latest software build?.

Terminal Servers with Windows Server 2003 R2 works fine for our customers ,
and R2 has some licensing advantages when using in a Virtualization

You can buy one Windows Server 2003 R2 Enterprise License en use 4 Virtual
Machines with this one license!.


With regards,

I'm about to deploy new servers into our Citrix PS4 farm. Should I use R2 or
just standard Windows 2003? If so then why?
