windows Server 2003 in 2017

Hello Experts,
I need to explain what are the main disadvantages
of using windows server 2003 as a virtualbox machine 4Gb RAM

Besides not having any support since 2015
it is 100% compatible with latest dot net visual Studio ? or latest Java ?
and latest MySQL database?

 need to prevent our team of working twice because I did not check on this.

What other services, facilities will be lacking ?

And finally what would be your best VM configuration for a database that handles around  1 Gb data  with 10 local connections over the LAN ?

How much RAM would you ask for your VM server and how many processors ?

Best regards,
* ramWindows Server 2003* VirtualboxWindows OS

No updates, security is lacking, it cannot be patched any more.

Why do you need to keep it?

Our customer (remote customer) has some IT support person that keeps suggesting win 2003 server
Now we have tested it over RDP and its ie browser is obsolete, and makes it very difficult to download, update or to do basic simple tasks.
so I think this can become a major issue when our team starts installing apps and working on it.
