I dont know how to program or anything crazy like that. But I use Linux on my server. The reason I choose linux is obvious: Stability, Efficiency, Price, and of course Geek Factor. I could not afford to run a winblows server, and I dont think many enthusiasts like myself could. We spend enough on Hardware, I dont need to spend $280 on a crappy version of windoze, that a 7 year old script kiddie could write a worm for and shut down in 10 minutes. I mean my Dual Processor Motherboard was only $200. Tell me how a $2 CD-ROM can cost me $280. It's just wrong.
RedHat All the way!!! Power to the People! not a Billion dollar conglomerate.
BTW all prices quoted in CDN funds.
