A server? For you, or for more people than you? If for you, windows will work,
but I would get NT rather than 95. If for multiple people..... again, get
Linux (or NT if you must). If you havent heard of Jolt, Land, SSPING,
OOB(nuke), and all the other ways of bringing down a WinServer (this includes
the F0 bug) remember this: Redhat Linux has fewer bugs than BSD which has
fewer bugs than Windows. Redhat 4.2 is easier to run a Circ on (no complaints
for Redhat 4.2 so far!) than Redhat 5.0. Look at: for more information on downloading Redhat 4.2
