    I'm deciding about buying a dedicated server for webhosting.
    One quick question, when is better to use windows server 2003 and when is better to use Linux?
    In particular, I was told that in windows server 2003 I can use ASP and PHP without problems, but not in Linux.... is it true?
    Can I have a technical explanation for this?

    ASP is a Microsoft website language, and so I'd assume you need Microsoft's IIS webserver to use it (or that IIS would provide the best support for it). PHP should work on a Linux server without any trouble.

    Inorder to decied which you need

    Does your website use asp or php? If it doesn't use either yet or you haven't developed it yet I would go with Linux it is a little harder to setup at first but downtime will be much less fewer lockups, less updating etc..
