It was my intentions 6 months ago, but linux (all dist.) seems to have problems with a lot of hardware and i couldnt install it on any server, especialy cause linux doesnt recognize my sata2 hds or my compaq array scsi controller. Windows detect any and every hard over earth, so, i install vmware under windows. Plus, i can get via terminal server to the windows and gain access to the linux console, on a 100% linu enviroment you cant do that
