Even if it was (I heard that it is not), linux has nothing to fear from viruses, whereas Windows...

Actually it's much slower than Samba, and ADS doesn't work well. Only
comparison where it beats Linux hands down in terms of highest numbers
is security holes.

whether it be a product of microsoft or not, i don't think anyone would run a server for anything if they did in fact have to reboot it a couple times everyday ....
either you are your friend is overexagerating ...

well it is not my friend who is running the server...who only works there...and his boss seems to be a windows lover...they do have a red hat 7.3 server(which i personally disapprove of too) but they only use it for test runs...his boss is one of those windows lovers with no knowledge or inclination of learning anything else....for example on the red hat server when he had to delete a dir...all he did was rm dir_name and then went around pressing y for every file in there...and this he did in front of me so i know my friend was not exaggerating.
anyways...what beats me is not why someone would run a server which needs to be rebooted often but why someone would run a windows server in the first place.

It's the same with us, the one Windows (2000) server we have to run
because the software on it has (yet) no equivalent under Linux needs
to be rebooted at least every fortnight; I personally have never seen any
machine running under any ms os, desktop or server, which could be up longer than 2 weeks (and I've seen a lot). And I don't think ms has solved this problem under XP/Server 2003.
So in fact I think you're right, nobody really wants to run such
a server ;-) - it's just that we have to... still.

I heard there's life on Mars too, don't mean I believe it til I see it..

Back to your old ways eh, futurist? What does this have to do with Linux - Software? Wrong forum and its been reported to be moved and or closed most likely as we don't need a thread of this nature that is only going to cause a stir on the forums.

You've been warned about this plenty of times futurist, please don't start up old habits again..

Regards.

PS. No flaming please, post constructively or move on if not. This thread will most likely be closed really soon no matter.
