stored makes no difference)

Q: What's the difference between unix and windows.
A: The Unix operating system was the preferred operating system
in the early days of the Internet It was, and still is a stable
platform for a web server, as compared to that of the early day
windows equivalent.Unix has been around as long as windows, if
not longer, and because of it's age there are many software companies
that support it. There has also been many scripting languages
placed on the market to compliment Unix.
Only with the arrival of Windows NT has there been a windows
operating system stable enough to go the distance with a web server,
we are only seeing now with windows software that is advancing
ahead of it's rival. Windows has gone to great lengths to compliment
the previously mentioned scripting languages, and has introduced
new languages for connectivity to MS Access database's and excel
For most people Unix is the Ideal, and from our point of view
is much easier to look after . If you require connectivity from
your web page's to MS Access database's etc, or Cold Fusion support,
Window NT will be the one. We have servers here on both operating
