    Talking Personal Opinion on Win 2003 Server

    Well i would like to express my opinion on win 2003 compared with other Win OS's , to be more expesific Win Xp Pro.

    Win 2003 Server when installing and it ask you for a Administrator password if you type a all-lowercase password it pops up a warning that says that the passwords should have numbers uppercase and lowercase letters etc. Something that XP doesn't do.

    When I installed Win Xp the first time i scanned my computer with LanGuard with out any updates or anything and i could see all the services that were running and had many open ports, and also had the administrative shares enabled and i couldn't disable them , i had to shut down the Server service . It had remote registry editing enabled, you could see all the user names, etc.
    Yesterday i installed Win 2003 Server and i did the same thing that i do with every os that i installed for the first time scan it, and what was my suprise it only had 3 open ports
    135 [ epmap => DCE endpoint resolution ]
    445 [ Microsoft-Ds ]
    389 [ LDAP => Light Directory Access Protocol ]
    it was easy to disable the Administrative shares
    What i didn't like is that it doesn't have pinball and Solitari

    I finally found a Windows that i like, but i would'n change Slackware for anything

    I would like some feed back of other users that use win 2003 server and have other comments that they would like to add.

    My opinion on Windows 2003 Server, is that Windows will always be Windows (Windows are easyer to break), and not a door(Linux) that has a better firewall . (Which is harder to break down.)
