    What OS are you using on your servers?
    Curious about what people are using. If you have any comments on what you are using, that would be appreciated too.
    Thanks in advance.

    Now ... how do I set multiple options?
    Ah well, that's what the edit button is for

    Been away, now I'm back. Not as much, but I'm back & starting from scratch. Where I was, was fantastic. Where I am now, less so. Things have changed, become harder. So have I. Game ON!!!

    I could only vote once, but...

    I have two Reseller units with a host in NJ - they are using CentOS on all of their shared servers.

    I have two VPS units with a host in VA. Each of those shared servers are using CentOS.

    I also have one Reseller account with HostGator, but do not know what they use.

    Hmmmm...time to consolidate a bit. But I'll never put all of my eggs in one basket.

    I had to vote (FreeBSD) although I don't use a dedicated server yet. It was the only way I could post. Just wanted to note that FreeBSD is NOT Linux.

    I'm surprised to see the current poll results showing a sizable minority of Windows server users. Could be, but sometimes people assume that because they use Windows on their PC, that the server they upload to must also be running Windows.

    If you spend a lot time and energy reaching "expert level" on a particular OS, then it doesn't make sense to swap to another. I've got over 17 years of experience programming on Windows and spent 12 years porting high end 3D graphics programs from various flavors of Unix to Windows.

    With that much experience, it just doesn't make sense to develop for Linux, even it is a better platform for high traffic websites. I'm 10x more productive when I code for Windows because I'm more familiar with it.
