Nothing wrong with not being an expert, I was just pointing out that those uptime stats can be misleading. In fact it's even mentioned in the uptime FAQ at the top of the page you linked to.

Anyhoo, I hear ya about OC. I'm purchasing my final components for my new bomb this week... I just bought that sweet Xeon W3540 that does 4.35Ghz@1.35v and I can't wait to try it! It will be my first watercooling build too! Imma start a work log soon!

Thats why I like Ubuntu (Debian based).

Although Debian-stable is very robust, much more so than Ubuntu.

I don't think people realize just how easy it is to setup a small server (web or access management) with Linux...

Exactly. Why deal with Windows-related issues if it's just a server?

You could try Ubuntu 9.10. I think it's a stable release now but 9.04 is, too.

I have used NTFS-3g for NTFS compatibility. I haven't had any problems with it although some say do so at your own risk. But, I think it's pretty good. If Linux is used just for a server, I believe it's pretty stable and you get a lot of options to choose from. Heck, you can use a really low resource DE and then you can use an older machine if you wanted.
