I would second this.

At least I know the core OS is secure and stable. The only thing I need to
worry about is the Frontpage extension itself. Customers are customers ...
they want what they want, and if I don't give it to them, they'll take their
money elsewhere.

I just remember working at a hosting company a few years back. I didn't administer the linux servers, but I recall the linux admin had a great deal of trouble with unix frontpage extensions and getting them upgraded periodically. He often sat on stale software because it was a pain. I don't believe any operating system is more secure than another. It all depends who is setting them up. My former boss was very lax about security and his linux systems were often rooted. My NT servers were never rooted as i took proper security precautions and patched regularly. People can get in through services more often than exploiting OS vulnerabilities. of course anyone can get rooted, I was just rather lucky.

Don't misinterpret this as a plug for microsoft. I like FreeBSD quite a bit.
