Servers and OS?
Which one with so many choices?

Right now I am using virtual hosting. They provide a free bsd platform. I have decided to get my own server and have it housed locally for about $50 a month. Now the question becomes where do I start? Although I am familiar with the unix platform, should I consider making a move to a Microsoft server OS since my company consists of just me? Or should I go with a scaled down UNIX product? When considering a machine, do I need to consider the OS that will run on it? For example, if I bought an IBM server, is it built to run a particular type of OS or can any system go on any machine. Sorry for all of the questions, but I need to get a head start on this. Thanks.

Get FreeBSD if that's what you've been using - it will run on any PC-based box.
