Intranet and Extranet system platform

Go to the Unix versus NT Organization website at http://www.unic-vs-nt.org. THey have a good list of companies using which web server and in which platform. It also has several white papers, guidelines, research papers, etc. This is a great resource. Their research was featured in EC Technology News late last year I think. I hope this is a good start.

As a short & sweet answer, its awfully darned difficult to beat an appliance level server like a cobalt that is based in Linux, has all of the features needed for web, mail, FTP, Telnet, SQL database, and SSL built right in for less than $5000. We are standardized on IBM systems in-house and for critical services, but when it comes to a run-of-the-mill web hosting need, we use appliance servers like Cobalt. They are cheap, easy to manage, have almost all of the flexibility needed without mostof the customization costs, take up very little space, and are fairly well supported.
