Windows 2003 Server or Linux Enterprise
Posted on 2004-04-23
You have probably heard this question many times, but what are the pro's or con's to using Windows 2003 Server as opposed to using Linux Enterprise.
This is the situation my company finds itself in and we have to make a decision on our new network architecture very soon.
We are only a small company with about 10 users and are currenlty using Windows 2000 Server with 2000 or XP on the workstations.
The requirements of the new Server is to act as the Primary Domain Controller, File Server, DNS Server and DHCP Server, it will also host our ACT Database.
Most of our experience is with Windows o/s's and we have very little expereince with Linux, although it used for our Mail Server which is running qmail, but out Technical Director is not one Mr Gates's most avid fans and is thinking of going the Linux route, which most of the Techy's don't like the idea of.
Should we migrate to Windows 2003 Server or move to Linux.
