    I've seen that a lot of the server admins [personal or otherwise] on here are running 2k/*nix. Anyone running OpenBSD/OSX Server, or any other platform outside the norm?

    I'm sure you'll run across a lot of admins that are running mixed environments. *nix is fairly popular for security and internet services...

    Dunno WTF any good admin would do with an OSX server? :dunno::rofl:

    I've got a Sun Solaris server at home, although its not doing anything productive at this moment. The new place I'm at runs Solaris but I'm not an admin there.

    I have two OpenBSD boxes. I don't remember what their hostnames were or even where they are or what building they are in. Oh well.

    Picking a server OS depends on your priorities. Need to save money? Need something stable? Scalable? Easy to use? Powerful? Also, picking a server OS depends more so on the application you are going to use more so than the OS itself. After the bubble burst, financial resources seem to be the priority.

    And when you state *nix, you state all Unix flavors which include BSD and OS X.

    An OS out of the norm for me I feel would be OpenVMS. Although old, there is no OS out there as powerful and as stable as OpenVMS. Not even UNIX, it can't even touch it. Even now a lot of features UNIX is adapting, VMS has been using for at least 20 years.

    My systems at home have Windows 2000 Server and Redhat Linux but I dont really do to much with them, play around, and tinker mostly. I been messing with FreeBSD lately thats about it, but no OpenBSD yet.. some day though :)
