    Thanks for the pointers. What makes things harder is that we have multiple customers wanting to dump windows server and switch over to running linux. Cost and stability concerns. These are very low tech customers.

    In order to get even passable network IO throughtput they do need to get windows with nfs (only one customer has figured that out yet) which is tons of $$$ and our stuff still runs better on linux. Just to give you a rough idea one customer has 100 windows boxes running as a cluster to process vexcel data. They figure with our software they can do the same with probably repurposing at most 10 of those same machines (some of the processing must be done on windows still though). Apparently writing the check to MS just for OS licensing makes them wince.

    I can't say blame them. UNIX was a carefully designed operating system and it has successfully grown and evolved to prove that out. For me working on it has always been like working with a neat and well organized tool box versus one which everything has been thrown in willy-nilly.
