How to choose between a Windows and a Linux server?



The choice between Microsoft Windows and Linux is largely prompted by the technologies used by the web designer. Telenet offers the two systems.

If you wish to use asp(.net), IIS or an MS SQL Server database, you are best to opt for Microsoft Windows . If, however, you prefer PHP, Apache, Perl, Python, MySQL Server database or open source programs (such as Drupal/Wordpress/Joomla...), then Linux will be ideal for you.
