Linux or Windows for server?

Guest 3DKiwi

Recommended Posts

Hi. I'm looking to change hosts for a number of reasons.

I currently have my site / forum running on a dedicated Linux server with PHP3 and MySQL 3.23. I want to change hosts and are looking at a host offering either a Linux server or a Windows server. Both with the current versions of PHP and MySQL.

I'm more comfortable working in a Windows environment but are there any pitfalls running on Windows? Any issues moving my db?

I'm a Linux fan SOLELY for server / hosting purposes. Mainly due to security / flexibility reasons. For everything else, there's Windows.

I'm with you completely on that one. Linux is absolutely outstanding to run a website from. But I'd hate to use it for my day-to-day computing.
