Well then, be prepared for a VERY long and hard uphill struggle. Be
prepared to spend hours/days configuring things that install & configure
in seconds/minutes under Windows. If you are dependant on wireless
connections, then don't even think of it.

I do all my development on Win32, but run my apps on hosted UNIX
servers. So after deciding to run my own server I set up both systems to
determine the relative merits of each - Apache2/mod_perl2 was a
prerequisite. I was fully expecting Linux to win hands down over WinXP
in terms of both stability and performance, but I was wrong on both
counts. This from someone who was heartily sick of Microsoft products
and REALLY wanted to like Linux. In my experience of many different
distros, life's just too short for adopting Linux for anything but basic
desktop (ie word processing/e-mails/web browsing) work, unless you
already know what you are doing. Count this a vote for the Windows combo
of Apache2 + mod_perl2 (can I believe I just wrote that?)
