Post your question to a community of 468,249 developers. It's quick & easy.

Which version of Windows Server 2003 is best for .NET development?

I have an MSDN subscription, and have all versions of Windows Server 2003
available.
I have been programming in Visual Studio .NET 2002 in Windows XP and 2000,
and I am setting up a new machine with .NET 2003 for new projects.
My question is, which version of Windows Server 2003 (Standard, Enterprise,
Web) is best for .NET development? I am only using the computer for
development, I won't be running any of my applications from it.

Thanks for your help, and yes, I have already Googled for this question and
not found it.

Hi,

I would use Standard. Web Edition is only a webserver, and the main
difference between Enterprise and Standard is that Enterprise can handle
more resources.

Chris,

Windows Server 2003 Standard should work just fine for a development
environment. I'm currently using it with no major problems although you do
need to understand the differences between Windows 2000 Server and Windows
Server 2003, especially where COM+ is involved.

Best regards,

Jeff Lynch
