Just the one question...
Linux OR Windows?
I personally would prefer linux, but I hear so much talk like: "the steam server for linux is SOOOOO UNSTABLE!! use WINDOWS!!"
Is this actually true? or is it that maybe the linux server takes just a bit more resources?
PLEASE HELP! I am getting a dedicated server set up and I need to make the decision (I could always install both OS's, but driving 75km to the hosting place to switch which OS boots up really sucks!). I guess I could set it up remotely to do this somehow...anyone familiar with that?
16-18 player server (maybe 20-22 if I feel like it!)
Mainly NS maps
Only admining type plugins (AMXX) and some small others.
512 PC3200 RAM
200GB HD w/ 8M cache
The Connection: 10Mbit
