i'd say just as a server for the sake of it. it won't look or act any different, just have more programs installed. if you are looking at sharing the connection with the windoze box then eventually i'd strongly advise using linux as the server, but not till you are ok using linux and then it should be clear why it is nicer to serve with linux
