I have a My SQL application running on a Window 2003 R2 server.
I need to get rid of the physical box and vertualize it.
Would there be a advantage to moving it to a 2008 or 2012 server in terms of preformance?
Other wise I will just P to V it and run until support runs out.

Moving to a 64-bit server with sufficiently higher amount of memory may yield performance gains,to be sure.  Not only is the 64-bit OS more efficient on 64-bit hardware, but the extra memory available to the OS, and the extra memory available to the MySQL process itself (4GB instead of 2GB) can yield better response times, too.

If it is a lightly-loaded system, you'll probably not see any differences, so just do the P2V and don't look back.
