    Hi,

    What do you think?

    Should i go for win 2000 or uniw when hosting my site? I have no idea of the advantages/disadvantages of each. Could anyone shed any light on this?

    Thanks,

    Ah did you mean unix by any chance? LOL

    Unix is a lot more secure than MS and like breeze said the open source is great allowing constant improvements to an already great OS.

    With widows you have to depend on MS to come up with advances and just look at all the great things they keep coming up with. <IMG src=http://www.abestweb.com/ubb/icons/icon36.gif>

    JQ, yes I see the message sorry.

    I'll have to work on a 125 x 100 but it shouldn't take too long.

    NO question:

    <font size=7>'Nix</font>

    Unless, of course, you like having your server go down from virus attacks.

    Actually I reckon the security on both is about the same.. but MS is a bigger target for attacks as the installed base is so large.

    Whichever you choose, they normally need constant security patching in any case, so make sure your host actually handles that.
