    Linux+Apache for an easy life.

    That said, If IIS was a necessity, from my little tinkering, it seemed easier to get a working IIS+MySQL5+PHP5 on server 2008 than server 2003.

    Still prefer a nix for web server platform for remote console management though.

    I'm waiting for zimbra to support 8.04. Until that happens, I'm staying with 6.06 on the DMZ server.

    Debian 4 on the rest

    Good plan. I think once it's time to upgrade to the next Zimbra release that supports Ubuntu 8.04, it will be time to upgrade the other 6.06 servers to 8.04 too.

    Centos and Apache.
    We just got a quote for RedHat enterprise - £35 per server for an academic license - so it looks like we'll upgrade to that as the boss likes the idea of support....

    It's hosted and backed up free by the hosting company... no work, no worries, no issues...

    Why do it yourself when it can be done by others..

    Q Associates

    It's an academic license.
    We just put a 15k order through them, so they might be being especially nice to us - but I was under the impression RHEL was competitively priced anyway for edu.
