Another silly question of mine, I am interested in all this misc stuff, BUT...

Why has this lovely Ubuntu communtity got a massive forum structure hosted by a windows server?
You think you would make a 'statment' and use a linux server?

This is clearly a Ubuntu server.

Well, even if it WAS hosted on a Windows server...
What would be the problem? It does work good, doesn't it?

A Windows server works well as long as you can keep the viruses, worms, and especially the trojans off of it.

A Linux server has no viruses or worms or trojans. Apache had the slapper worm, but only because a security patch wasn't installed before it hit. That patch was out about 2 months or more before slapper hit.

Not entirely true/correct.

My guess this was started to start a flame war. I am going to close it since its not relevant anyways.
