I want to set up a basic web server at home. I run Windows (XP on the machine to be a server), however I also have Ubuntu on hand if I need to run that.
Basically I was wondering if there are any large difference between WAMP servers and LAMP servers? I know they run virtually the same software, but does one perform better than the other? Are there hidden benefits of running it in Ubuntu instead of XP, or the other way around?
I know its a basic question, but I haven't done anything with Ubuntu, and I've done about the same amount with web server-ing.
