Is it the licensing cost or the reliability cost that has people balking 
at a Windows desktop?
Does anyone know the state of play with web servers?

for my part, I switched to Linux, because I couldn't be bothered dealing 
with viruses.
and have always insisted on Apache. The free software is a bonus and 
open source is reassuring.

Also, can anyone pinpoint why I can't view this page (in Mozilla 1.4 - 
ok, I said I was planning to upgrade...but haven't quite got there yet)

I accessed the info including the PDF report by viewing the source :-(
  It makes interesting reading given our discussion about the domain 
name stuff in December,
