    Question about Windows Servers

    Im wondering... how do you manage a windows server? is it SSH like in Linux... or do you simply see the desktop and can use it like a normal PC?

    Correct. It is usually done through Terminal Services or Remote Desktop.

    Can Windows run php/mysql just as well as Linux? or is linux considered "better"?

    It makes little difference to be honest. If you know little about how to run a linux server you are probably better off with windows..

    the only downside is that windows costs more

    Yes, you can install and run PHP and MySQL on a Windows Server. As for cost, it all depends on which datacenter you go to, some are offering Windows Server at the same price as say a Redhat Enterprise based server.

    Generally, if you need what Windows can provide you then the few dollars more is not going to be a big issue.

    You can run PHP and MySQL under Windows Server edition, but unless you have a specific need for windows (i.e: ASP support) I sugest linux.

    put it this way... both php/mysql was created for linux environments and then ported to windows.. pretty much most of the the scripts/apps for php/mysql are created to run in a linux environment.....some scripts/applications require you to run linux to work properly some just works given they were created to work with windows configurations... but to answer your question.. *nix is considered to be better to run them ....
