Pros/Cons of using Win 2003 over Win 2000 for SQL Server Enterprise ?

We've recently got a new Server in.
The server has 16Gb of RAM, 8 cpus etc
We now have a choice of sticking with Windows 2000 Advanced Server or
going with Windows 2003 Enterprise edition.

Besides being able to use more RAM and having to use Service pack 3a
in Win 2003

Any pros/cons of both ?
Any recommendations ?

We use Full text, replication, analysis services etc
What issues / Enhancements has MS introduced for sp3A ?
I know that once Service pack 3A is installed all full text indexes
are automatically rebuilt..

In a replication scenario Is it necessary or just a recommendation
that all participants in the replication scenario are using the same
service pack ?
Anything else to look out for ?
