Absolutely! In fact, when I first got into developing for the web, I started out using Windows and .NET. What you describe happened to me, costing me time and money, and is what pushed me towards FreeBSD and I've been a happy camper ever since!kpedersen said:I remember the days when I used to take this for granted. I believe it was in the Windows 98 days when I thought that my code and software I was currently using would work forever... Then Microsoft started pissing about doing insane things and changing everything
FreeBSD itself now seems like one of the only platform that doesn't change too much.
