    Ok, I am ready to buy Plesk. Only I don't know what I should run it on. Windows 2003 or Fedora?

    I grew up on Windows boxes but I want whatever will be the most reliable and fastest. I can make my way around the Linux environment just fine. Also, my box is going to be in another city once it is set up, so reliability is a must!

    The sites that I am hosting have a fair amount of php on them which interfaces to mysql databases. I will have about 30 sites on a P4 3.0 HT with a gig of ram.

    So, Windows 2003 or Fedora?

    Thanks for the time and the thoughts.

    windows or linux is your choice...

    i like windows hosting because of:

    - asp & asp.net support
    - easier to admin

    but you need to buy a windows license and a SPLA (service provider license agreement)

    linux is cheaper

    you should patch a linux server very often because if you wait too long with a important patch.....it's probably already rooted

    so make your choice ;)
