They called me the sparkle.
I was the best I worked them all.

I've used that quote before. But when I came across the story of The Lone Server, it popped into my head. The Lone server is the last Windows 2003 server being used on the Microsoft.com web site.

For years, my friends and I were on the front lines: we were the Windows Server 2003 servers that powered Microsoft.com ....
Quietly, without warning, the new kids took over... . All of ‘em on Windows Server 2008.
Except me. The last Windows Server 2003 left at Microsoft.com.

Note, we're only talking Microsoft.com here various other bits of Microsoft web presence might or might not be on server 2008.
