Windows 2003 Standard or Windows 2008 Server as a file server in SBS 2003 network

As per title. What would you recommend as a file server for the Small Business Server 2003 network - Windows 2003 Standard or Windows 2008 Standard? I have used Windows 2003 Standard as a file server in such a network before and it was working well. Are there any known issues when joining W2k8 to the SBS2003 network? I am going to use Symantec Backup Exec with LTO4 device to backup this server.

Your help is highly appreciated.

There isn't any known issue regarding joining a w2k8 server into sbs2000 network. I would still prefer using w2k3 because I KNOW it works well. I think the only concern is to get all necessary drivers for w2k8 server. I don't know about Symantec but some backup devices vendors have yet come out with w2k8 drivers. But having said that you can always perform a remote backup.
