Just for the sake of pure curiosity, do any of these include virtualization
built-in? Also, consider the cost of a single point of failure that small
business server concepts give you. I'm actually a big fan of linux in small
business environments because I can roll out lots of little appliances that
don't cost much and provide the services they need. By small, I'm talking
offices of 15 or less.
