Hi, if you have time I'd appreciate the corrections to the

I know I should not have written it, but there is so much
good fast cheap hardware, while most documents like
PC-Clone UNIX Hardware Buyer's Guide do not seem to give a clue
to today's market...

1. (Newbie Question) Hardware recommendations for Unix server?

I see all these advanced subjects being discussed here...and here I am with a
simple question (which may not have a simple answer).  

We are thinking of becoming a WWW server.  Curerntly we do not have any unix
machines in house.  There's a lot of them out there.  What should I be
considering when choosing a unix box for my  server?  Is any by far better
than the rest?  Do I need e.g. a Sun "Workstation" or a Sun "Server"?

Do I need to consider NT options? Or is the power of Unix outweighs NT as far
as running a WWW server? ....
