Forum OpenACS Q&A: Response to Open ACS as production on Windows 2000

Posted by David Walker on
I don't understand how clients get to make the technical decisions.
Why do they hire you if they do not trust your expertise?

AOLServer is discontinuing support for Win32 AOLServer.  It could
continue on in a fork (AOLServer-UH) or reappear as Cygwin AOLServer
or both.  If it is important to you should see how you can help with
one of those projects.

AOLServer on Linux, however, is not likely to lose official support
ever and if it did the community is up to the challenge of keeping
it going.

Personally I don't trust any server platform that I can't easily
eliminate all unnecessary services including the GUI.  I feel like
it adds extra points of failure.
