Default 2003 Compatability

Hi There,
I was just about to format my C partition which contains XP now and upgrade to Windows 2003 server so that i can host a test environment for a domain. The question I have is that will 2003 be able to run the common applications that I use such as Azureus, Full Tilt Poker, Ares, and various programs for XBOX. I realize that in a server environment these programs would not be installed on a server, but there are only going to be able 3 systems in the domain, and it really isnt critical for the domain to be up, its just for testing as I mentioned. Has anyone noticed any downfall to this OS in terms of the software, movies, codecs, and that sort of stuff?

I dont think so. This system will be running a domain, providing GPO, and acting as a file server. I dont think IIS will be able to cover the domain part if Im not mistaken correct?
