Windows Server 2003 won't run major Microsoft apps  

Windows Server 2003 won't run major Microsoft apps: "Windows Server 2003 won't run major Microsoft apps

SQL Server 6.5, 7.0 just can't hack it

USERS UPGRADING TO the latest versions of Windows Server 2003 will find some important older applications just won't work.
And the applications that won't work aren't paltry little applets but heavyweightware such as SQL Server 6.5 and 7.0, according to Microsoft.
Further, Windows Exchange Server won't work on Server 2003 including Exchange Server 2000 and Exchange Server 5.5, a report says on Techweb.
Microsoft has yet to release versions of some of the software, including Exchange Server, that will work on the latest products."

For most home users, this is a null issue. On the broader front, this is a major disaster, as it makes one wonder what kind of idiots they have working at Microsoft. Perhaps Microsoft will ship those users affected a free copy of MS VPC, so they can reinstall Windows 2000 Server.

Hmm... doesn't that kind of blow holes in any reason to upgrade?
