Windows 2003 server core is based on Longhorn Server Core ideas, which:
- Don't have explorer GUI
- uses 1gb disk space, and vista uses 6gb.
- haves only some GUI software.

My:
- CAN RUN ON 166MHZ 32MB PC (IMG:http://www.boot-land.net/forums/style_emoticons/default/ohmy.gif)
- uses ~17 MB of ram
- uses ~70MB of HDD space, while Windows 2003 server ~1,5GB
- haves some GUI tools too.

It's heavily based on Standard project, and i edited some scripts, mainly XPE - PNP & Multimedia and i deleted ALL audio.
If somebody can clean it EVEN MORE, please tell me.

Tasklist:
+ is done, * in works, - planned.

+ made it boot
+ haves network
+ haves PnP
+ deleted Audio
+ it's really lightweight
* adding more software
- add 2 NTOSKRNL's left.
- add MORE network drivers ;/
- add Mass Storage drivers
- do new boot logo
- do installer (i thought somebody with delphi knowledge, like Nuno, can help me)

Lol, they aren't goals, that is WHAT W2k3 server core can do actually.

Project is nice, and it uses CMD, that's cause how it haves so small use of RAM ;-)

I will do PicoRAM project, which will have BSExplorer as shell and can run still with 32MB of ram.
PicoRAM+GUI - pico (small), RAM (i mean, use of ram), +GUI (with Explorer-alike GUI) = small use of ram with Explorer-alike GUI (IMG:http://www.boot-land.net/forums/style_emoticons/default/biggrin.gif)

I modified many scripts to make that work as I planned.
Hardest work was with XPE - PNP & Multimedia, i needed to delete all the audio.
Because there weren't any audio support in Longhorn Server Core (the OS that was inspiration for that, and it's in Beta/RC? stage).

New version of W2k3 server core in works (IMG:http://www.boot-land.net/forums/style_emoticons/default/tongue.gif)

Tasks to be done 'till new version:
- add 2 NTOSKRNL's left.
- do new boot logo

EDIT (again): In my Windows 2003 Server trial, i didn't found any of the 2 left NTOSKRNL's, so i will make it copy them IF FOUND.

Oh my godness. A company "WestHurley ComputerReCycling" asked me stuff about Windows 2003 Server Core. So the project is not lost! Though i haven't touched it for 7 months... it's now back alive a bit to troubleshooting!

I rather randomly found it some minutes ago, too.
Look at this topic.

Maybe something can be combined (IMG:http://www.boot-land.net/forums/style_emoticons/default/cheers.gif)
