Dear Torok Edwin and friends,
Many thanks for your information.
You say below that it is a private mirror, and you say here that it is

As i mentioned in the first email, now i have been investigating ClamAV on
some commercial products, so we need to evaluate from many aspects. We want
to build our own mirror, so we can manage any services on it. Bandwidth,
traffic or any other condition is not our problem. Can you give me some
advices for some following questions:
+ If i build a Windows-mirror, what version we should use (server2003, server2008, xp ...)
+ If i build a linux-mirror, what distro we should use (centos, fedora, debian, ubuntu ...)
Maybe some distro of linux, version of windows has some advantages over other distros, versions. So i would like to know, what distro of linux, what version of windows are best

Many thanks for your useful information
