I need good advice, im an adequete programmer and use SQL a lot. Im not so clued up on server things, and i believe the best way to learn is from other people and doing instead of reading text (some reading is obviously requiered :mad: ) .
What would be the best all round solution (judging cost, ease of use and stability)?
out of WindowsSE, Linux (slackware or fedora) or freeBSD or an unnamed solution?
and out of an old 2 processor server, a P3 1ghz, 1 gig ram and SATA working with P4, 2 gig ram and SATA and just buying space on a server?
