I have a client who wants to start a very small 2-3 person company that will need both an email and file server and possibly some form of VPN. I will also want some kind of tape backup function.

All the client computers are Windows XP / Vista and possibly a Mac in the future. I have used Windows Server 2003 but am wondering about the possibilities of maybe using something like Suse 10 instead for my server. I don't know much about Linux.
