You make some great points, Bill.  But as a small business man I can't 
take the time update or to back out updates daily.  Or even weekly, or 
monthly, or quarterly, or annually.  I need a server platform I can 
leave (with only security updates) for at least four years.

Perhaps Linux won't fill my needs.  But I'd like it to.

I hope so as well.  But I can't help remember how the mozilla project 
went, and I can't afford to wait through as long as that took.
