It was delivered with Windows Vista Business Edition. And some other software that makes it run slower than it should. Thus after the 1st month having Vista on it, i decided to downgrade back to Windows XP SP2 Pro. And this is just so fine. Beware before doing this operation make sure that you download any Driver that are needed. Since the set is not delivered with a driver CD. I found all the drivers on the Lenovo website.
Here are some stats and test that i did.

The (gs) Grid-Server currently features the following versions of software:
The grid-server compared to the shared hosting packages provided a better handling of what is commonly known as the “bad neighbor effect“… read more here.
The migration from my old hosting plan on another server to Media Temple was quiet tricky, got issues like character encoding and the tool provided by MySQL for data migration is, how can i say, i bit difficult to handle compared to DTS tool provided by SQL Server… Finally i managed to get my data to the new server manually by generating INSERT Scripts…. 🙁
But now that’s its done i am pretty good, and i can now begin to get some pretty good things going on the blog, since i have much much more webspace and bandwidth 😉
