i've heard some different rumors about what's the best between a server in linux and microsoft.
My question is: does linux manage mysql and php as fine as microsoft?
I'd like to create a vbulletin based forum in my website, is it fine to do it in a linux server?

thanks!

Linux probably supports them better, but there is more of a learning curve as far as getting it set up correctly on Linux. It is more the web server you need to be concerned with than the OS. Most people that are on Linux servers use Apache web server.

Yea, Apache Server is the way to go I'd say. Never actually used Microsoft Server, but Apache works fantastically.

Definitely go with Linux, Apache, MySQL and PHP (called the LAMP platform.)
Once you get it setup and read a little a bit about using a firewall, you won't need to worry about daily exploits, buffer overflows, and viruses.

actually the point is this: can a server linux support asp.net as well?
So, altogether: mysql, php, asp.net?

thanks
