Hi Jean Pierre,

Both 2003 and 2008 platforms are very stable. We do not have a preference between them. Please note that the current release of Windows Server 2008, known as Window Server 2008 R2 is 64-bit only. I mention this because your message includes a preference for a 32-bit OS.

Large NowWAP installations are preferrable to be on a 64-bit platform, as the 64-bit platform offers more address space and allows NowWAP to process more concurrent transactions.

NowSMS continues to operate in 32-bit only and performs equally on either a 32-bit or 64-bit platform. It is not as memory intensive and does not see a benefit in the 64-bit OS.
