Development and systems Q&A
by Justin Ellingwood
Its 2018 why doesn't Digital Ocean support IIS servers? C'mon now!!
I want to hard work on my site: https://galaxyxxi.com/ with this RDP
Amazon Lightsail recently drop down their prices... https://aws.amazon.com/lightsail/pricing/
windows server pleaseeeeeeee..... waiting forever
I can't believe this is requested since 2012 and still not support for windows. I'm linux and windows guy but sometime we required windows due to IIS application stuff.
If you don't want to do it, you should update the status.
That lightsail option seems good - shifting now. These guys have been "Gathering Feedback" for the past 6 years.
Moving to Amazon LightSail.
Really... It's 2018.
Please allow this, we'll bring your own licenses if needed.
It has been so many years since this issue is open, will you guys ever listen?
Yes please add Windows Server! :)
I cannot use DO for our production environments until you support Windows server and IIS... I'd also need to be able to install MS SQL Server
I want to see the Digital ocean providing the cloud windows servers too
Its 2018 why doesn't Digital Ocean support IIS servers? Cmon now..
I want to see the Digital ocean providing the cloud windows servers too
please add it
Please add windows support
WE NEED WINDOWS SUPPORT. I don't know why it's not added yet, most of users prefer windows exactly, not Linux
windows server is must.
I also would ask for Windows server support. I have no problem using my own license.
I don't mind bringing my own license since I have some spares on hand, but I seriously need one.
This is a no-brainer - why isn't it here yet???
Would move everything I have to DO if you all supported windows server. Would even be willing to do the install and get the license myself if I was able to just mount the image and get everything installed.
windows server is necessary
Agreed! i using a mix of GCC, and AWS alongside DO, would love to have DO for all!
Please add Windows server
yes please allow Windows OS
Yes please. It prevents me coming over to DO
5 minutes https://teamhelps.pp.ua/top/windows-na-digitalocean-za-5-minut/
Install Windows 7 x86 on digital ocean 512 mb droplet: https://teamhelps.pp.ua/top/ustanovka-windows-7-x86-na-digital-ocean/
Windows Server please!
Of course, let it be!
Please add windows server
This would be an amazing feature to be added.
The market DO will tap into would be HUGE, so I hope you will seriously consider adding Windows Images.
I too would love to see Windows servers added. My applications need IIS and SQL Server!
Plz add windows server
asked years ago and still nothing :(
Interested by VPS with windows server OS distribution
Can the DO team publish a blog post outlining their plans? Regardless if it's a yes or no, I think the community would appreciate a heart felt update on this request.
You are crazy! No update on this matter in the past 2 years. If you are not interested in this, please tell us already...
please add window server 2012
any suggestions for hosting companies providing windows droplets?
Given that Windows Server 2016 heavily supports Docker and Microsoft has "nano server" and "server core" Docker images should make this somewhat easier than several years ago when this was proposed.
I would also like to add that the PowerShell team at Microsoft has also ported OpenSSH to Windows (still a work in progress though it works pretty reliably on my dev box).
Given these and other recent developments, I believe this could really become a possibility. I would even be willing to pay the "Windows server tax" to run Windows droplets.
However, licensing could be an issue with this as well. There's two ways I can conceive of that may work:
Working with Microsoft regarding Licensing - which those costs could be offset for an additional monthly fee to run a Windows Server image(s).
Bring Your Own License - users are responsible for purchasing a License to run Windows Server on DO.
In any case I would be interested to see this as option for sure.
Your prices are competitive, and I would suggest if you add Windows Server Droplets with $ 5 or 10 addition in your existing prices, you will definitely attract customers.
Please add Windows droplet as soon as possible
I have built a guide on how to install Microsoft Windows onto your Droplet, please see here - https://www.whatuptime.com/installing-microsoft-windows-onto-digitalocean-droplet/
i need windows!
Please support windows server!!
we need this.
Imho, I think this is unnecessary. Most of the web services/tools/frameworks run on FreeBSD and GNU/Linux. So not sure how supporting windows will help _significantly_. Please DO focus on world class support for FreeBSD and GNU/Linux and if possible provide a custom ISO option so people can load whatever they want and be done with it!
windows on vps, please windows so 10 or windows server :)
not sure why such a request with so many voters is still being ignored
Go for this.
Support windows server
Provide the Windows support as soon as possible.
Soon as possiblllllle !!!
You gave good support and a high speed VPS but you give only linux.We need windows too
If you had the same system with a windows option at a good price, I'd look no further.
please.......Need windows server to run my service
I think it is very necessary to have windows server hosting option for DO droplets.
Yes pls windows server
Yes I do beleave that bringing windows vps servers to digital ocean will not only increase digitaloceans business and sales. but will also make it easyer for some customers to get referrals under them. as alot of web developers and students out there prefer windows vps to linux. as command line does not come easy to them.
yes please, I want run my erp in cloud
Ready to buy windows hosting
need a windows serve ASAP ..
This would be amazing. Build a set of base snapshots and use them to triage defects coming from our userbase. I can run version n and n+1 side by side on two droplets to ensure the right engineer gets the assignment.
I would really like the ability to send up and down Windows Droplets and pay by the hour, something the other VPS providers don't do.
Kindly introduce windows based droplets as we are working with many windows based applications..
would like to use it for windows games on a chromebook
Most of our stack is Linux but we need a Windows server only for hosting our Selenium browser-based autotests. I want to make the switch from AWS but I don't want to use two different providers.
4 years past and no update? lol. So much loss of client
W I N D O W S V P S
We are waiting for windows, please make it happen. it is not so hard to do, but many people will leave other companies and migrate their servers on digitalocean. what's the problem, we everyone know that it'll not be so fast deployment etc... but no one wants to deploy windows server in 10-50 seconds, we need to have windows option, even if it'll take 10 times much deployment time.
RAMNODE gives it !!
Why not you?
windows vps should be on digital ocean <3
i too need windows vps
Please add some options to have many versions (Win 7, 8.1, 10 and not just the servers version!)
Please have windows
Any planned timeframe? That post has been opened in 2012.. More than 4 years later, and nothing yet. I think that many dev that are working with corporations, or bigger company needs to comply with windows environment, and DO could be a good partner for that. DO, you are already offering a good solution, but why not a COMPLETE solution?
I really want an windows VPS but there is no available now. Please setup soon.
Please have windows server also
It's actually appalling this isn't available...
Yeap, Windows Server would be great!
I have leave digitalocean for 2 years ago only beacuse there is't windows server. Every support from digital ocean is great, so when they support windows VPS i will be back.
I need IIS...
Just looking for windows VPS. Will buy today.
Windows Windows Windows pleaseeeeeeee
Any progress on this request?
Bring windows please!
Yes Windows please!
I need window sever.
I need windows vps.
We need windows machines !!! pleeeaaaasseeeeeeee
Just noticed that <a competitor> (using KVM) unofficially supports it now, so it should be possible, please? :)
Please Do it DigitalOcean
yo windows i need
Please add windows ISO
Vote - including ISOs
Please, add Windows vps server that will bring digitalocean more powerfull and great.
We need Windows VPS
I want to put the windows services, as many people like and if you only have linux, almost no one bought recommend it, I need windows in my service.
I'm not sure that this really fills a market need... Azure does this already, and it integrates much better with the windows environment than any other service could (which makes sense, because Azure is run by Microsoft.) Currently, Azure is a little more pricey, but if that $3 scares you, well, for most anything truly mission critical you will find a way to pay it.
This would be super nice
Go windows, go DigitalOcean.
Such customer service, much wow
At least tell us what will it take you you to do this!!
We need WINDOWS :)
Going to be 3 years since the suggestion still don't see any update. Except for a gathering info for a year. Please update !!!
Do it Digitalocean Do it!
Only digital ocean can make the experience of windows VPS bearable... save us...
go windows go!
Right now I need a Windows VPS
Would be awesome!
need a windows server
Hi there, I need a Windows either server or even Personal OS image to test integrations. Please let me know when will it be implemented any time soon.
I don't want too much.
A simple Win Server 2k3 will supply our needs!
Today is possible to run asp.net on linex, but we need to install Sql Server Express.
So, windows still needed
would have been nice to add a sql server to my digitalocean account. Will have to look for another provider
Why are you leaving money on the table? Take your "anti-Microsoft" religion somewhere else.Just provide a service and people will pay you in real money.
Why do you insist on throwing away money by not endorsing Microsoft Windows? It's the biggest software company in the world. And you ignore it. Bad business decision.
Just another +1. I am in need of a cloud-based server, running Windows. Please consider. You guys are at the top of my list (I know many developers who love your services!) However, I'm strictly a M$/Windows developer and I need a windows server.
Please, don't make me use Amazon. :/
Windows 10 will be free for everybody in the future. So there is no problem.
I want buy VPS for run website asp.net, i want support setup window server 2008 in cloud? Thanks
Looking forward for windows VPS for streaming services development.
any better website then www.vultr.com ?
windows support would be perfect with these prices.
Ok, if i scroll down i see alot of people want Windows Server 2012 R2 right?
Simply use: www.vultr.com
windows support would be perfect with these prices.
Go! Go! Windows! :D
Right now I need a Windows VPS, and I am looking for options outside DO, where I have a Linux Droplet. Please add Windows.
Great if you can provide windows server also.
Having to source other providers for Windows. Will be requiring 3+ VPS and potentially up to 10 in the near future .+1 for Windows!! Otherwise a great product/service.Thanks
Windows support is necessary.
Windows support is necessary! A lot of softs can only run in windows.
+3 I wish to develop in ASP.NET and that's a bit more of a hassle on Linux.
Having Windows Server as an options doesn't hurt you a little bit, does it? Bringging in potential customers is always a good thing.
+3 I like Linux, but Windows and Mac are the only ways to run the Unity editor (hopefully that will change).
Add Windows OS Support or you'll never be on top, I mean as Compnay. Top Companies support all OS not only Linux....
+3 For Windows Server + SQL Server
Your service is worth nothing with Linux servers. I don't like Linux and I can use only Windows for my own developed applications. So please solve this ASAP.
I totally agree with this comment: Boyd Badten commented · March 24, 2015 1:01 PM
My concern on this is users using illegal methods to trick Windows operating systems into thinking they're legitimate, which would cause a lot of problems with DO if Microsoft find out.
But I am game for DO to allow Windows Server droplets.
Would really like to move to Digital Ocean but need Windows Server.
Also with Windows 10 coming out for free for everyone (win7, win8.1 users) developers will be using Windows 10 as a huge developing platform. Only fit that Digital Ocean begins to support Windows.
There's private beta testing? How do you know?
Really pleased to see that private beta testing started last month on this. We have a whole bunch of services that we'd like to migrate to DO if there were windows support.
Sadly, I CANNOT use Linux droplets for the thing I'm doing. It must be on Windows, so sadly I can't use DigitalOcean. +1 to Windows Server.
.Net is going open source, supporting windows makes DO really more awesome and attractive. Don't forget it, please put it into action soon.
+1 for windows
Yes Please we want Windows Server we like to have Windows server :) with best IP's +3 Vote add Please waiting...
This would be an awesome addition.
How is this not a thing yet?
Not everyone can choose their platform. You've just lost a potential customer :-/
Windows option would be great.
Guys.....you're only getting half my business because of your failure on this Windows thing.
Just do it very simply....customer supplies their own license and manages installation process into a blank droplet from a list of ISO's that you supply (with any necessary drivers baked in). Don't fiddle with licensing with MS, I know that's gotta be a hassle--and it unnecessarily complexify's your pricing. Keep it simple.
These guys are stealing my business from you:
...because they allow me to install a Windows machine into a blank "droplet" using my own license and ISO. Works like the dickens.
If you continue to be inflexible on this issue, believing that "Linux is the answer for everyone" then you're going to get run over by others who are more flexible.
I work for a software development company and many on my customers have theirs WIndows-based websites hosted on Azure, Amazon or Rackspace. Please, add Windows Servers :)
Add this please
It would be nice to have Windows.
Yes, Windows is much needed.
Do you have any ETA about this?
+3 votes, highly desired feature. I know Microsoft volume licensing can be a bear, but Windows 10 server licensing is supposed to be simplified, so maybe this will be easier to accomplish in the fall. It would be great to get some sort of response to know if this is worth waiting for.
Seems like the staff is ignoring this request?
please windows !!! i love linux but ˆ%$ˆ%$ˆ%$^windows i needit!!
I feel your holding back, vultr are starting to gain the lead, not only on price, but the choice of OS and locations.
Please support Windows we would live to incorporate all of our hosting into DO and ditch Azure!
+1 for any Win instance.
I hate windows but we have app we need to use for cloud rendering and it only comes on windows.
Is always good to have options, please add Windows.
I could use a windows VPS. There are ecommerce tools I use that only run on windows that are tediously slow over networks. It would be grate to RDP into a windows box and manage my databases this way.
its been about two years since it was posted...
+1 for this.
Azure is DO for Windows
+3 for Windows Server
+3 Votes support Windowns server
+3 Votes Windows Server is Bae
+3 vote to support windows server! why not ws and ms sqlserver?
+1 windows server

yea. add win please
I really need the possibility to create a Windows droplet for running Windows builds (MSBuild C++). Any version of Windows would be fine (ideally Windows 7 x64).
+3 for Windows Support
I need Windows Server for Jenkins and MSBuild (C++). Please add Windows (but not that shitty command line version).
Can we get an update on this Digital Ocean?
+1 for windows support
+3 for windows
I would really hate to see a slow server os like Windows server. Uses far more resources then it should and is not nearly as fast as the Linux based systems.
Guys... ASP.NET 6 will be open source & can run on Linux. You don't need Windows anymore...
I need windows server!!!! ASAP
I agree on this. I hope Windows will be supported soon~
We run a large infrastructure of servers combining Linux and Windows. We require Windows Server for specific VPN and Exchange needs and use Linux for file hosting, cloud applications and databases. Got 15+ servers we'd be happy to move to Digital Ocean if you can support Windows Server OS. Additional: For the geeks out there, check out joodle.nl for his method of installing Windows on a Kimsufi dedicated server using rescue system. Maybe this is possible with Digital Ocean to avoid complicated licencing problems? Tried it with Linode VPS but unfortunately they use Xen without HT support so it's not possible for Windows to run.
I need cancel to use DO, since I need Windows hosting. :(
+1 - windows must have
pls add windows
+1 for Windows. Would love to use your service.
+1 for Windows
+10, please we have servers we would like to migrate to DigitalOcean.

without windows you are missing a big market
When you add windows bro?
yep. goindos para las masas <3
Give us windows please...
need windows too..!
Also could use windows
need windows too.
Any update on this?
windows easy to use, windows please !
+3 from me on this one
-1 for Windows OS. Please do not spend time on deprecated OSes.
+1 on Windows
If we could deploy windows servers than I can start to move all our development servers ( 20 with serveral 4 / 8 GB machines ).
This would make Digital Ocean a viable choice for more company's as a backend.
Would like to get an official view on this!
please support windows os!
Shut up and take my money
+3 for windows support.
DigitalOcean, could you explain what is the holding up regarding supporting Windows Server on your droplets? Is it licensing agreements with MS? The need to build technical knowledge in the area? Just throw us a bone here.
need support windows
please support windows os! I will move my all db and some websites!
Another upvote for windows...
would be great +1
I really cant believe this is still not possible.
Please? Please? Please?
GOGOGO +1 COME ON!
+1 +1 +1
+100 Was considering moving some linux and windows VMs from amazon, but you don't support windows yet, I hope you support it soon.
+1 I'd be willing to pay more for windows server 2008/2012 licenses :)
I'd greatly appreciate adding Windows-based droplets to my existing infrastructure that already runs on DO.
Windows Support would give you a lot of Leads!
I would love to build my entire web app in your infrastructure. I would require 3 servers. 2 for front-end iis and 1 server for database in a private network, to feed my front-end servers.
Like me, there are hundred of thousand of clients with this architecture.
Oh well, back to Azure...
only thing preventing me from ordering. and yeah, it can be win7
Yea I agree, I would like Windows to be hosted. The is the only factor holding me back from purchasing here.
I'm curious why people are inkling for Windows? For ASP? .Net? It's far costlier for companies to go down this path, so I'm curious what the advantages are? I know... I'm poking the fire by posting this. :P
+1 I would agree to pay a lot more for this type of droplet
+1, add windows support
I signed up and paid, then realized Windows is not an option. Hang on to my money. I'll get around to spending it when you make Windows an option.
windows ... now + 1
What is the current status of a release plan for Windows dot net support?
I vote for windows as well! +1000000
Please add support windows. I didnt finish my droplet due to lack of Supporting Windows
Well. I want to add my vote: +1
Does Windows and Docker work together :)
+3 for Windows
+1 please add windows... ready to pay RIGHT NOW !!
MS student program... Please *---*
add it plz
ADD IIS PLS!!!
Yes add it
+1 Please added it in, already a paying customer already!
please add this!! paying customer already!
I guess I'll have to use Azure again
+1, any prevision ?
+1 Windows VPS
Count me in! +1
I didn't finish my droplet due to lack of windows support.
Any plans to support Windows in the near term?
Please add support for this. I will be tempted to move my business elsewhere
add win7 or win 2008 plis , ubuntu not compatible for all
Best scenario would be that people could use their own Windows licenses. There are over 1000000 students around the world that have free Windows server license (MS student program)... Those students already maybe even have some DO linux plan...
Do let me know if you are able to have windows 2008 on digital ocean.
yep we need windows droplets
+1 I would join today if it was available.
+1 for windows support. Or should I vote in different place/issue tracker?
Please please do this, It would be very useful for remote connections e.t.c.
How do I vote this up?
1021 votes....When it going to happening?
Windows Droplets would be Great..
It doesnt have to be win server. Win 7 would work for me
+1 for win
Windows is mandatory for my needs, preferably have the price rolled into the hourly cost. Don't wan't to have to pay a chunk cost structure.
This would be awesome. Would be a great option for spinning up WebAPI environments.
business some times need windows
+1 for windows droplets
+3 for windows servers
windows!!!! more customers...
+1 for Windows server
Great service but having a Windows VPS will allow me to dev and test my asp.net apps.
How about installing just server core. Also need sqlserver web edition.
+1 for Windows Server support!
Yes we want windows server.
Survivor 2014 - Müge Uzel
Need Windows Servers please on the panel :(
How to -1 lol
i will buy a windows vps. but digitalocean doesn't like windows. you lost a customer. good luck :)
win server 2003 might help us reduce the price if windows plan become true
we need windows
please please please add windows OS
one more for windows
+1 for windows.
Pleas add windows VPS.
Ohh no. Please no Windows. I run out from it. i don't want to see it
Don't see Windows as an operating system. It's more of a huge Application Server like Java Enterprise Edition. It runs many helpful software applications, very easy to configure and works out of the box with other Microsoft products. A realistic engineer take advantage of whatever is out there.
So please provide Windows Server hosting.
I'm interrested in Windows server
need windows asap!
need windows VPS, please!
++++++++++++1 we need windows
I just *have* to poke fun at the Windows users: Yeah--I can't wait to see the price of a Windows dropplet. They'll need to create a special new class of droplet just to cover the amount of space needed for the Windows SWAP file. Don't forget the memory and CPU hogs that are SQL and Exchange. Licensing will bump up the cost too... ;)
NEEED WINDOWS +100500
WE NEED ALSO WINDOWS OMFG.
Internet is full of Linux Servers
The ability to run a mixed environment would be ideal
Please keep the Linuxsphere and the BSDverse clean of pollutants - no Windows please!
Can I post a negative vote... I would -10 this idea because I don't want windows hogging up my linux vm resources!
I use digital ocean because you don't support windows. Instead you focus on making the best cloud hosting for Linux and BSD in the world. -671 votes from me!
Voting up for windows +10
it would be great to host dotnet here, means windows servers even just in core
Yes we want windows server
(in the meantime, aws micro's cost $0.02/hr for windows server...)
it would be great. +1
+1 also for windows
+1 here too :D
I love the price point here. Too bad no windows as I am a useless sludge on anything else ):
Provide windows vps
In the interim, check out: https://www.digitalocean.com/community/articles/how-to-install-virtualbox-on-ubuntu-12-10-x64
Any news about windows support?
Why is it that Windows Server is still not offered when...
In February 2012 you posted "Wanted to give you an update that we will be looking into providing windows based droplets.
We'll be doing private-backend beta tests in March.
Once we have more information I'll have this ticket updated."
Windows is bad for the SSDs, or any HDD because of the NTFS file system's method of getting files etc. I would not recommend allowing windows unless it's on servers that are never going to be used for linux. :/
Unfortunately at this time we do not have any plans yet to support windows.
I definately +1 this
Please bring Windows support.
I need this too.
As @Sebastiaan noted. Once the cost of the Windows license is factored in, kiss the $5 & $10 droplets 'goodbye.'
This would be awesome. We have a lot of legacy code we need to integrate with our Rails stuff.
Negotiating windows licenses is not that tough, worst case scenario you place the onus of us.
Typical. Haters gonna hate ...
Can I downvote this?
I only recently changed to http://ceano.colt.net/ because you don't have windows this host was looking so good
+1 windows servers (asp.net c# webforms webapp dont work well on linux mono)
Mac OS X is only allowed to be installed on Apple hardware, so Mac OS X will not be possible unless DigitalOcean decides to migrate their servers to Apple machines, which is unlikely.
In another issue, I've read that Windows droplets are considered, but licensing is difficult, so don't hold your breath
+1 This Would Be Awesome
+1 for Windows droplets. I'd move over from Azure in a heartbeat. Hope you guys make it happen.
Vote for this one instead, I believe http://digitalocean.uservoice.com/forums/136585-digital-ocean/suggestions/2536799-can-i-deploy-windows-
+1 - even though I hate windows it's useful/required for some situations
How can I minus this request?
+1 Come on guys!! Just waiting for this...
I managed to get a Windows VM working on my Droplet using VirtualBox, however, I can't seem to take advantage of my droplet's multiple processors due to this: https://www.digitalocean.com/community/questions/support-hardware-virtualization
We are not currently looking to integrate Windows into the cloud, sorry.
Why apologize? You're serving a burgeoning customer base with the best technology and the highest level of service available, while incredibly doing so at the lowest cost! If someone wants to deploy an application on technology from 1987, they have other options.
Unfortunately we do not have any plans currently to integrate Windows into DigitalOcean.
With the kind of nonsense involved in having any relationship with microsoft, you're better off with superior technology and reduced costs.
Didn't KVM fully support for Windows?
you guys can purchase Windows server datacenter license,
As a reference, my previous unmanaged VPS provider offer KVM Windows VPS with a free Windows license. They told me that they use Windows server datacenter license.
I am pretty sure, DigitalOcean as a fast growing VPS provider, you guys can assure Microsoft to give you this such kind of license.
AFAIK, with Windows server datacenter license, there is no complication with the licensing system.
I'd happily add ALL of my votes to this one issue.
It looks like you're doing just fine without windows.
Well i dont go with you guys because you dont have windows this host was looking so good
+1 Windows would be great. Maybe we could supply our own product keys?
There was an earlier started thread requesting windows support so we're going to close this one in favor of the original which has more votes.
We do not have any plans to integrate windows virtual servers yet.
There are a quite a few complications as related to licensing, partitioning, and security issues with windows servers.
We are very much interested in windows droplet.
May be you can offer minimum with 2GB Ram package?
Also any updates and looking for an acceleration on this mater.
I'd like to join the voting list for Windows support. We do need a machine with the most powerful configuration running Microsoft SQL Server (64GB RAM +).
We do not support windows and we do not yet have any plans to support it in the future.
Any news about this?
I work with Window machines installed on KVM all the time and haven't had any issues with it. Since DigitalOcean uses KVM, it would be nice to upload my own snapshot and use it. Just to test, I installed KVM on a droplet and then loaded my own image. That worked. But what a lot of overhead. 3 OSs and 2 KVMs! (Windows - KVM - CentOS - DigitalOcean KVM - SomeOS)
Good to see the roadmap with great important features.
Seems like DNS management is in.
Any idea when we can expect other features?
We've looked into providing windows droplets unfortunately this is still a long way off.
Right now we are focused on adding other features to the platform :
Analytics and Trending of system resources
No update here? Still not available? Is there pricing details?
Count me in! As long as the pricing is competitive. Not 7-8 times the Linux box, like RackSpace...
Unfortunately you may run into issues running a windows VM inside of Linux because of networking.
Since the virtual machine is already bridged from the hypervisor, bridging from the Windows VM to the Linux VM and then to the hypervisor could be a problem.
I haven't done it, but would be curious to see if any user attempts this and if they have success.
If you cant figure out how to start a windows image from within a linux vm, google is your friend.
I too woud be interested in using this product/partnering but only if I could spin windows image.
Wanted to give you an update that we will be looking into providing windows based droplets.
We'll be doing private-backend beta tests in March.
Once we have more information I'll have this ticket updated.
Currently we do not have support for windows but it is on our roadmap. If more users up-vote windows servers we will push this through sooner.
I havent used a windows box for quite some time, I and Icouldnt care less if windows is supported. I certainly would never develop an application on a windows server. I woudnt event know how.
