And it works. Oh my. My, my, my.
I'm wondering what portion of the WebmasterWorld 'members' are actually running their own servers to host client sites - and what are their machine specs?
Yes, I'm feeling entirely too ambitious.
Kinda reminds me of the recent article, 'How To Tell If Your Son is a Hacker'... Maybe he is
Since I've only ever worked with Linux boxes - I think Linux Redhat is the safe bet. I also heard about Apache on Novell - but that seems a little exotic.
I am not a fan of Cobalt.
There is no such thing as overkill in processing power!! ;) Besides Linux gives you a perfectly good excuse to dump more money on multi-processors in that is does a great job at utilizing them.

I don't know what size office this is, but you may want to run *outside* their firewall to maintain their security and limit your liability.
> I don't know that I need such a fast processor...
If you get a lot of traffic, a fast processor will help. A webserver will typically spawn a new thread for each connection. The greater the number of connections, the more the cpu has to work.
But, to answer your question -- no, I don't run my own server.:)
