No...it contains no other hotfixes. It is Windows 2003 SP1. The R2 features
are just that, a set of features you install off the 2nd CD and then enable
as needed. There is nothing about them that adds value to a Terminal Server
deployment as such, unless you wanted .NET 2.0, so just install the first
disk, which is Windows 2003 SP1...nothing more and nothing less.

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 environment.
      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?
