I’m afraid it depends on your apps have a look at paged pool and non paged pool 
limits in 32bit @ 

If you can get a baseline of what your existing servers are like, then 2003 x32 
Enterprise might be an option.

2008 / XenApp 5 x64 has been with hotfixes very stable
2008R2 / XenApp 6 has been next to useless.
2008R2SP1 / XenApp 6 has massively improved reliability, few issue’s still with 
apps namely Adobe CS Suite breaking autocreated client drives but this still 
needs retesting.

OK one more …

….Is it worth looking into Windows Server 2003 Enterprise Edition to allow it 
to user more than 4Gb

I know the best solution is to probably virtualise until I get to play with 
XenApp 6 on 2008 R2 but I may not be able to as yet.

Good to here that as it looks like my next two servers is going to be 2008 with 
office 2010 and XenApp5.

Have you mixed 2003 and 2008 in the same farm ?

I will be using two separate published desktops one for Office 2010 users and 
the other for the rest.

OK Carl I'll bite. What is wrong with XA5/2008?  I run this now in production.  
I find it to be stable and performing well.

I personally think that XenApp 5 on Server 2008 is the ugly red-headed

looking red-headed step-children on the list.
