2012 Remote Desktop server in 2003 Forest

Considering installing a 2012 Remote Desktop Services server (STD edition) into a domain that is only at 2003 Forest level. AD servers still running 2003. Some 2008/R2 servers.

Is there any reason for me NOT to use 2012 RDS instead of 2008 RDS in this environment ??

The RDS server will be running primarily Office 2010 and Acrobat 10 (full package) as the primary end user applications.

Thoughts are appreciated.

Several:
- Major RDP improvements, including UDP transport. Performance is like night and day difference.
- Introduction of User Profile Disks (way better than something like Roaming Profiles).

The list goes on.
Now that 2012 R2 is out, go for it. It further enhances RDP and fixes a bunch of issues seen on 2012 RDS.

Based on what you've described, there is no reason to avoid 2012.

Thanks for the opinion.  Not having had much experience with 2012 as yet, can you think of a reason why I should go with 2012 versus 2008 RDS other than the obvious more current solution ?
