The British English version of Windows Server 2003 doesn't use or even include the [https://youtu.be/B3nSs_sZH8I widespread startup sound]. That sound came from a [https://youtu.be/44WeDtVOrns promotion animation] (cut by TheCanadianToast) The Windows XP startup sound were actually used for copies of Windows Server 2003 in all countries. There wasn't even a special edition for the United Kingdom of Windows Server 2003. There wasn't any country-specific editions of Windows until Microsoft was forced to release N and KN variants for Europe and South Korea with Windows Media Player and other features removed after antitrust lawsuits.

Windows Server 2003 is the server counterpart of Windows XP. It comes in editions like Datacenter, Web Server, Standard, Enterprise and Small Business (the latter is technically a separate version). It replaces Windows 2000 Server and was replaced by Windows Server 2008.

Codenames

Its internal codenames were either dotNET (.NET) Server (As evidenced in the Windows buildtree, where its source is located at D:\dnsrv) and during the development of Windows XP, it was codenamed Whistler Server.

Release 2

An interim release under the name of Windows Server 2003 R2 was released on 2005-12-06.

Other versions

As well as the standard Windows Server 2003, several other editions were built on the NT 5.2 kernel, including Storage Server 2003 R2 (released 2006-03-05), Compute Cluster Server 2003 (released 2006-06-09), Small Business Server 2003 R2 (released 2006-09-01) and Unified Data Storage Server 2003 (released 2006-12-05).

United Kingdom version

The British English version of Windows Server 2003 doesn't use or even include the widespread startup sound. That sound came from a promotion animation (cut by TheCanadianToast) The Windows XP startup sound were actually used for copies of Windows Server 2003 in all countries. There wasn't even a special edition for the United Kingdom of Windows Server 2003. There wasn't any country-specific editions of Windows until Microsoft was forced to release N and KN variants for Europe and South Korea with Windows Media Player and other features removed after antitrust lawsuits.
