You never said it, but it seems like you are wanting to run a webserver.

You can get IIS off of your Windows disc (I think only pro). It's kinda limited, because you can only host one website at a time, but it will be something you are used to (Windows, I mean).

Linux + Apache are pretty easy to set up as a webserver, but then you have to get used to a new OS (which really isnt that bad).

Bottom line: Try IIS (if available) and see how that suits you :D

Google tutorials for Linux+Apache, and look on Microsoft.com for tutorials for IIS.
