Note: Windows Server 2003 was released as an upgrade to Windows 2000 Server. Additional features in Windows Server 2003 include. windows 2003 server support remote desktop feature but in 2000 remote desktop feature was not supported.
Window 2003 server includes IIS server in it. That is the biggest advantage on top of better file system management.
