    Heya. I have barely any experience hosting game servers; the last time I did it was many years ago.
    I'm wondering whether it's possible to host a game server (e.g. Counter Strike Source, or The Hidden) with a GNU/Linux operating system (probably Ubuntu) and have Windows-based clients connect to the server to play online.
    I tried researching the issue but it seems this is not a popular question. Search results seem to indicate that it's perfectly doable, but reliable confirmation would be sincerely appreciated. Thank you in advance.

    As long as the game can support both OSes, it should be fine as the data between computer is the same.
