Windows SBS 2003 vs Windows Server 2003 Standard

I can not find a breakdown of the deifferences anywhere. Does anyone know where to find one? I'm assuming SBS 2003 is Windows Server 2003 with less functionality?.... I just want to know the differences. THanks a bunch.

Way off the mark...

SBS2003 Standard is Server 2003, Exchange 2003, is designed for a non-IT to administer, is mostly wizard driven ('cos it breaks almost all 'best practices'. It's crippled to 75 users, no trusts, SBS box must hold all FMSO roles...see http://www.microsoft.com/WindowsServer2003/sbs/evaluation/features/default.mspx

The same....but different :)

Same MMCs as found in Standard but the Wizards make standard tasks easier...when you add a user in ADUC you then have to create a mailbox, add to various groups, add to dist lists etc etc. The new user wizard kinda bundles things together - even grant access to the builtin Sharepoint site.

Suggest you look at the MS SBS 2003 R2 site - documentation is fairly comprehensive and explains the restrictions and benefits much better than I can...

Thanks, but is there any documentation that actually compares the two side by side?
