Hey, that's pretty funny. Actually, I would much prefer a Linux environment, but I don't
always get what I want. We are primarily a Windows and HP-UX shop, so it's not so
easy get the powers that be to buy into a Linux box. In addition, I'm using several
sets of in-house libraries for this project that have not been built on Linux. I could
easily burn another couple of months setting up build environments and testing
the Linux builds. Not going to happen at this point.
Our low-end server environment is W2K3, so that's what I'm stuck with.
