[back to theforum for this general question]

Has sysadmin begun to talk about that in general, or not at all in the past?

I feel that if it ends up with #2, the redesign must happen 
concomitantly, because design and re-coding will only happen once -- 
whereas if we redesign and then decide to go the linux route, everything 
will need to be redone.

Or maybe it's too early to talk about it since you're in the money 
questions right now...?
