Webserver and Operating System

  JanaMan 18:44 06 Dec 2006

Hey ppl, basically I would like to know your opinion on which is the best operating system for a webserver, im comfortable with either linux or Windows and I will be able to get any version or distro.

I am using my old computer for this its Pentium 3 500Mhz with 500mb Ram and 80Gb HDD Space. Its going to be connected to a 16MBps internet connection and my home network. It needs to be able to handle PHP and i may use other serverside scripts later on.

The websites will be designed on another computer using dreamweaver and then ported onto the webserver using a flash drive or through the network.

Thanks ppl,I would really appreciate any help at all!
