Ok.. don't start laughing... I am a php VPS guy and have no idea what a windows server is... at least I think that is what this site is about. I think i want to purchase a windows hosting but not sure... at best maybe get in with a cheap package monthly until I see if it can do what I want... So my questions may not make much sense.. but I gotta ask.... 1. I do a lot of programming in vb6, vb.net and vbs... visual basic script. 2. Of course since these programs need a windows desktop to run, they tie up computer time and the computer must be on 24x7. 3. My question.. does having a windows server allow me to run a program on the server and not use my computer... is there a list of what can and cannot be run on the windows server.. 4. I have been a linus guy forever, but want to look into just what a windows server is all about... 5. Maybe someone with a reseller site could just set me up on a reseller acccount for 90 days to see what its all about..and let me pay per month, or maybe I could build you some automation software for free.. I love automation.. hell maybe I could set you up a website and attach an IDX and then set you up a free Adwords account with 20,0000 real estate keyphrases all live and bringing in leads for free... think I am kidding just google "20,000 Key Phrase Adword Account Free." and you will see its real... 6. Anyway any advice on what I could read about windows servers that would get me smart real quick in this area would be greatly appreciated.
