Switch to windows?

I have heard some rumors many big servers using Linux are now switching to windows because of fewer crashes, better support, and something more. What is your opinion on this? Worth the switch if you have the chance?

Linux used to be unstable in past but currently I am not really seeing any differences as long as you have everything configured properly. This is all lies lol honestly, and atm 42% of all Rust servers are on Linux. *this is my very own opinion

I have to say I am surprised to hear that you have such an opposing view, especially since you are a pretty big plugin dev which would indicate you know what you are talking about. You may or may not be surprised to hear this, but I did actually hear this rumor from another big plugin dev. So this might be an interesting discussion.

This is all rumours as long as you have everything properly set up. I'm having daily crashes on windows and almost none for multiple years on linux, so lol this is random. There is one crash related to memory or something which requires one command to be ran to fix though if we talkin linux specific, so that's it really. the rest is the same from my experience of helping/working with few hosts and many server owners.

Nearly all servers (of all types) run on linux because it's a better server platform for all kinds of reasons. Rustserver is no exception. The only reason anyone chooses a Windows server is because they've been using it on their desktop their whole life and they're afraid of the unknown (Linux). Anyone considering switching their server from Linux to Windows is crazy as a box of frogs IMHO

people have been choosing Windows because in past there indeed were issues with Linux AFAIK, large ones, but not right now lol

Interesting. Guess I'll be staying on linux a little longer then.

This might be kind of a noob question, but is the command you are talking about something everyone hosting rust servers on linux should execute once (or after every restart etc..) to make sure it doesn't happen? Or is it only for people who are currently experiencing the related issue?

well it doesn't necessarily always happen but u should just execute it on the physical server itself once to fix it

Ah ok. What is the command?

Can I please have the command 🙏😇?
