        I've always used Linux. But now I'm thinking about using Windows Server 2003 based dedicated server.

        I do not know how to protect Linux server (it was cracked few times). I think I'll be able to protect Windows server better.

        Also, I think Windows servers have more user-friendly interface.

        But what about speed? And security?

          Speed, is about equal, either with IIS or Apache on windows.

          As you've already expirended, security always comes downt to the administrator, if you don't take additional steps to secure your server its not going to matter how much original security you have.
