[Samba] Samba as member in AD-domain: which windows to prefer?

Greets, samba-users,

I am forced to accept the fact that the migration to some new software
leads my customer to introduce a windows-based DC ... degrading my
samba/ldap-setup to domain-members ... *sigh*

Now I am asked what windows server to prefer (in terms of how samba will
interact): ms windows server 2003 or 2008 ?

I googled a bit but haven't yet found a clear answer so I choose to risk
a "rtfm"-reply here ...

Currently I still run samba-3.0.33 there (gentoo-based), so what would
you experienced users point me at? Sure, I will upgrade samba if
recommended or needed.

Thanks a lot, Stefan
