Shalom,

Functionally DNS on windows versus linux is th e same. Both work.

Financially if you use a free distribution of Linux you save a lot of money in license fees.

Re: re:DNS server

Personally, I almost always recommend using Bind or PowerDNS on Linux (or another UNIX platform), especially if you already have a Linux/UNIX environment in place. However, if you have enough Windows admins who really know their environment the Active Directory integrated DNS can be a viable option for internal-only use.

You need to evaluate your needs, your existing environment, and your ability to support the system.

Re: re:DNS server

the best depend by your system enviroment and people that administrator the dns.
Your system: windows, linux, mac ...if you like windows it's very easy to implement; if you like linux you must know dns, command line, ecc...
