We are setting up a WWW-based free-net and are looking at various
operating systems to play host to our server, which include: Solaris, SCO
Unix, BSDI Unix, Linux, and Windows NTAS. Does anyone have information
and/or experience as to which OS might best serve a WWW- based free-net?
We would like to use NT for ease of system admin, but not if there are
any horror stories about WWW servers on NT. We have educational discounts
for Solaris, but the hardware/software add- ons can kill a budget. We
think SCO or BSDI or Linux might allow for more options (for less), but
do not want to sell ourselves short if these are not the best choices.
Anyone supplying sound advice which we end up using will forever be
honored on one of our Web pages--what more could one want from life
Thanks in advance,
