in support, that's Windows server. and it's versus Linux.

a fresh install of Linux is said to be very insecure without proper configuration, versus the fairly tight security on a fresh install of Windows Server 2003. i have personal experience with 2k3 and can tell you it's pretty good.

of course, active directory is the most unfriendly, cumbersome hunk of crap i've ever had the misfortune of having to configure.
i recently had the pleasure to play with Panther Server. *jawdrop* *hugs computer* OMG that thing is insanely great.

count on it.

I will be working on migrating the company's web hosting all over to one machine.

A G5, the actual project will be mainly concentrating on Virtual Hosting. Something I know nothing about.
