Lon remembers that you used to be on the Operating System Team and tells you to develop the base recommendation for his review.
I am required to review UNIX-like/Linux-networking, Window 2003 server, and Windows 2000 server and determine which of these operating systems best meets the client's criteria. You will write a draft recommendation for Lon. This is a recommendation not a final report. You will use the list of aforementioned needs.

Include the advantages and disadvantages of each OS.
