Running soldat server on Windows or Linux.
What is better? What do you prefer and why?

For example I'm running Home dedicated server. I don't need server management because i have only 1 server running.

If it is Home server, i think , it doesn't matter what OS you have  :)

JFK told me that Linux takes less CPU-load. Is it a big difference what it takes?

If you're running lots of servers then yes.

If just doing one then don't bother learning it.

I had some problems with File Server Socker on WinXP but it doesn't bother anymore when I changed to Ubuntu

I prefer running soldat servers on CentOS 5. Correct me if I am wrong, but I think they are generally of better performance then servers ran on Windows XP

Linux is more secure, and faster - Windows is easier to use.

Windows XP, easy to understand and use.

On 1 hand WinXP is easy and light..
on the other hand Linux is more stable and fancy :o

as a matter of fact, big scripts tend to crash less on windos. Prolly since its less strict on all the memory business :|

Linux becomes insanely easy to manage and use once you know how to use it. And once that happens, you deliberately want to avoid Windows, especially for anything server related.
There are other worlds than these

It happened me few weeks ago. I totally agree. Thanks Torvalds!

Yes, that happened to me.
I was totally amazed by Linux.
And then how easy it's to use it when you know stuff.
Wonderful OS.
Although, I'm pretty sad that Photoshop doesn't really work on Ubuntu, though.
If I'm ever going to host, I'm going to use Linux :).

Well, Photoshop 6 and, I think, CS2 work under the latest version of wine. (Whenever using wine, use the wine ubuntu repository version, not the one in the main ubuntu repos. as that's destined to be several versions too old.)

Oh thanks, I do have googled for it.
No luck, though.
That's maybe because I use CS3 Extended version instead.
Lets keep on topic, though. :)

Linux uses much less CPU and RAM than Windows.
Windows is also freezing sometimes and there comes out other "billrulz"-errors.
