I'd rather avoid an OS advocacy war here, but if I'm honest, with group
policy and other tools such as SUS, I find that my Windows servers are
actually easier to administer than the Linux ones (I have about a 50-50
mix at work). Perhaps that's because I favour Slackware though?

As for the 2-4 servers quote, I find that a little on the high side. I
agree that generally you might expect a little more performance from an
equivalent Linux system on the same hardware, but in my practical
experience the difference is far less than you suggest.

Regards, Dave.
