Infrastructure wise, it is base on windows 2000.
Well if you are thinking which to implement, go for Window 2008.
Reason is that windows 2003 support is going to end on 2013 and we should move forward to setup windows 2008 os for any servers you would like to implrement.

There would definitely be more features on windows 2008 that are not available on 2K3

essentially, the differences are very close to the differences between windows 2000 and vista.

2008 is based on vista, 2003 is based on "windows 2000".

if you're considering upgrading, you should look into "server 2008 R2" which is based on windows7
