What is the question? Are you saying PHP is not stable on LAMP? If PHP
is not stable on your configuration under linux, it's not installed
right. I doubt installing it on Windows will improve your situation.
Typically going from stable and solid to flaky and buggy does not
improve your environment.

Stability of a server depends on how good the sysadmin is, not host on the
OS.

I'm running Apache and PHP on XP Pro here and it's solid as a rock. It's
probably Windows itself you need to worry about.

No, it will be as unstable as the windows server is, which is about 100
times less stable than Linux.
Leave windows where it works, as a desktop. Use linux as a server, which
its far far better at.

Disagree. You cant get round memory leaks on Windows with anything short
of a complete recode of the OS. No matter how good a sysadmin you are.

Yes.

Ive got apache2 and php5 running on two public websites here. Never
misses a beat. On Linux. Only get rebooted if the power fails.

Agreed. I just wanted to make a point on "switching to linux won't solve
your problems, please become a better sysadmin instead".

Well some would aver that switching to Linux will FORCE you to become a
better sysadmin..;-)
