A few 2003 still here, our SIMs server will be pulled out later this month and the other one will go once we find a viable Frog Help Centre

Most of ours are still 2003 server. We've now got 2 2008 R2 Active Directory machines though.
We couldn't move everything over this summer due to time constraints and money constraints (ie. software on the servers that would require new versions which we can't afford to do, so they're stuck on 2003).

2008 R2 across the board here with Windows 7 Pro clients... no plans to upgrade for a long time yet. Oldest OS is probably our Centos 5.7 Samba server.

2003R2 VM that used to run our old MIS and was using as a print server for Xp clients. Printers are being moved over to a 2008R2 VM, after that everything will be 2008R2

Why do you boast about this still? :P Staying on Windows 98 in.. 2012 is just crazy. Sure it "works" but you're ignoring 10 + years of improvements that MS have made with SMB file sharing.

You do yourself a disservice by using it still, as if I saw a Windows 98 server in production still (or.. ever, even in 98 it was silly not to use NT4 instead) I would assume that the network admin is incompetent, which you aren't. :P
