Hey
I just installed a copy of Server 2003. One thing I noticed, there's no Welcome Screen in Server (the one called logonui.exe). However, the file exists in the system32 directory. What can I do to enable the XP style login? I'm pretty bored with the Server 2003 style of login.
Thanks

Server 2003 is meant to be just that... a server. If you want a pretty OS, use a workstation operating system such as XP.

You're right. The performance of Server 2003 is MUCH better than XP, both in terms of regular use and for my intranet site hosting.
