RE: Best Server OS

Eug, I'm not talking about costs. If you're talking the best, cost really shouldn't be a consideration. And you may be somewhat shocked to learn that Solaris/AIX really isn't that much more expensive than Win 2K3 in an enterprise setting.

If you're just talking about running a lil or medium sized website, Win 2K3 is fine (altho Linux is probably a better choice for this). If you're talking about the Best, it's not Win 2K3.

And I'm not being rude, just realistic. How is Win 2K3 Server more accessable than Solaris? Isn't Solaris x86 available really cheaply, if not free? Isn't it cheaper than Win 2K3? How is this not accessable?
