I run both, and they are both stable. Feature for feature, they are
very similar within same revs, especially the 7.x versions.
As for the server, just probably wanna double check compat of products
you choose to build, in some cases they are right on with support, in others
it lags, sometimes due to friendliness of vendor, standards etc.
last point, for expandability, it's hard to beat a big box you can just
have room to grow in, and it's hard to justify, for a linux install, a new
mac, although if you were talking unix ala bsd, osx is a fine alternative.

Anyone running SuSE on intel in here also?
I know this is a PPC forum, but what do you think?
I have 7.1 running on a 8600 and need to add more disk drives. I have been
using macs for years, but they do have their limits. Speed with SuSE is
good, stability is good...
Q-Should I switch over to an intel box? I need more drive space. I was
thinking about getting a big empty PC box, a relatively cheap mother board,
cheap video card (it's just a server) etc. and building my own. P4 or Athon?
I would love to see what 2 gig's of ram does! Also I need to mount my
internal DLT drive and it takes two bays. This is not for any big company,
just for a small prepress server for a small commercial printer.
I'm not one for needing to run the latest and greatest, just what works.
