    Windows standard 2003 vs R2

    Is the R2 just a version with all the upgrades or service packs already updated?

    In other words can I use the older copy and just pull the upgrades from micosoft.

    The R2 version is actually a different release. It includes features not included with the normal Windows Server 2003. For most scenarios, you probably won't end up using the new features in it for a web server. However, the biggest feature that our customers have utilized is the improved DFS replication.
