    Not that I don't like Server 2003, but it doesn't exactly belong in the Server 2008 forum. There are separate forums for Windows XP and Vista, Server should be the same.

    I also would prefer a separate forum for the Server 2003.

    although i've got quite a bit of experience with 2K3 and XP x64, i agree, there is a forum dedicated to XP, therefore it would make sense for a dedicated forum for the same generation server OS, unfortunately, i have no authority, so i'm in the same boat as you guys. I guess for now, if enough 2003 threads spark up within the '08 forum, there is bound to be a little "housekleening" and motion towards a dedicated forum( hopefully).

    How would you guys like the renaming of the forum from "[...] 2008" to "[...]2008 and 2003"?

    I was just going surgest dropping the '2008' :)

    I don't think theres enough server users (even including the Sever as Client guys) on the forum for seperate forums.

    I renamed it now.

    I see your point, ZaForD. We're a more or less specialised technical forum, more a closed community than a big forum for everybody to ask computer related everyday-life-questions (of course, every one is invited to ask whatever one wants)... anyways, we are what we are. There are no problems, so why bother? ;)

    Because, it would be less cluttered/confusing to have them in two separate forums.

    We already have to nearly inactive subforums.... I respect your point of view, but if I open up a new subforum for every kind of bla a few users are coming up with (no offense!), we would end with the longest forum index on the internet :D

    As long as there isn't the really massive need of opening up some more subforums, I won't do it.
