it doesn't matter what type of operating system you want to use for development. if you can install the visual studio on your computer and it'll do :-)
(visual studio installs also the .NET framework)

so you can develop without problems on an win xp box for instance.

when you want to run your asp.net apps you also need IIS 6 (can also run on win xp)

or when you want to use microsoft asp.net webmatrix then you don't even need IIS because webmatrix has an built in webserver for testing purpose

btw the versions of windows server 2003 are:
windows server 2003 standard edition
windows server 2003 enterprise edition
windows server 2003 datacenter edition
windows server 2003 webserver edition
windows small business server 2003

Hey,

I personally use a P4 laptop with dual-booted Windows XP(Home) and Windows 2003 Standard Edition. And I've done some ASP.NET web applications using the Windows 2003 standard edition.

Basically, you don't even need to install visual studio.net (it would be a good asset but not a must) to do any asp.net web applications. WebMatrix on the other hand, is a good alternative to the bloggy VS.Net.

Basically, I suggest using a minimum of Windows 2000 (any edition). But the various OS that you can use are:
Windows 2000 (any edition that has IIS server)
Windows XP (Professional or Server as they are the only one's with IIS Server (IIS5.1) )
Windows 2003 (any edition: has the new version of IIS 6)

You need the DotNet Framework to be able to serve/develop ASP.Net web applications. It comes as part of the VS.NET or if you choose not to install VS.NET, you can download just the framework from the microsoft website: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyId=262D25E3-F589-4842-8157-034D1E7CF3A3&displaylang=en . Its about 23MB download exe.

Basically, that's it, install the framework on any platform that has or can run IIS, either use VS.NET or WebMatrix (http://www.asp.net/webmatrix/default.aspx?tabIndex=4&tabId=46) for a user-friendly development and you are basically set.

FYI, my settings for ASP.NET web applications are:
P4 Laptop with Windows 2003 standard edition,
IIS6 (pre-installed)
VS.NET
WebMatrix

Hope this helps.

Ajay.

just keep in mind that the IIS you can find on the server OS gives you the opportunity to have multiple websites. when you use IIS on a XP box for example then you can host only one website
