Server 2012 is Much better than server 2003. You can't expect to jump 2 operating systems on hardware that is what 8-10 years old and expect it to work just like magic? You can't do that on any OS...
IF you knew what server 2012 did v 2003 you would be all for it. I only had one issue with DNS and a change I didn't like. Otherwise Server 2012 is FAR superior and more stable.
XP is presently 4 operating systems ago. It was long supported and a good system in it's day. It is technologically challenged more so today than ever though and anyone staying on it isn't terribly smart about it. Your system WILL be saturated with malware soon.
Embrace Linux. If it ran native MS software WELL I would as well. The thing is 99% of business software doesn't run on Linux. Maybe 5% runs on Apples.
