Hello all,


has anyone switched from a mac server to a windows server?  my DB was built on a mac and has been hosted from one for the past 6 years. All my users are on macs and will likely remain so. our server needs have recently grown tremendously.  I am considering switching to a PC for a server because of the horse power i can get for the money without paying for fancy things a server does not need. 


A deciding factor for me will be if i can seamlessly switch without causing any glitches in my DB.  Does anyone have any experience with making the switch? 

BTW i am running the most current versions of FM on all devices and will be doing the upgrades after a relatively safe amount of time has passed with no reported issues.


Thanks for reading and commenting.
