Why bother moving it to the poll center? That's already a couple threads and polls like this.

As everyone's already said, XP for desktops, and 2003 for servers. That's what they're meant for, and are better suited for. Besides, have you seen the price tag on win 2003? That alone should prevent most people from even considering it (beisdes 12yo kids pirating it and then using it for gaming and such just because they can).

If you need IIS6/RRAS/DNS/WINS/RIS/MSMQ/WMS or such server components, or need to install server software (SQL Server, ISA, Exchange, ...) or server purposes (corporate file/web server, terminal server/citrix, mail server, VPN, etc - and I'm not talking about home use or a for couple users) then you use 2003. Otherwise you use XP. Pretty simple...
