The only thing that has changed recently is the rise of minecraft which can be hosted on linux. But it not a full blown studio game which I was implying.

So some games are too new and thus don't count, other games are too old and thus don't count and the remainder of the games just don't count for an arbitrary reason you just made up. Sorry mate, but you're really coming across as if you're just making excuses now.

If you've never tried to run Linux game servers before then nobody expects you to be an expert on it so you really have nothing to prove. However people on here /have/ run Linux game servers before

The only reason to use Windows in the past was for MSSQL supperiority over MySQL in database driven MMO's. But in today's world MySQL can keep up pretty decently. And most games, have Linux based servers, then have a Windows port made so users can host their own from home.

Why they no use postgre meme.jpg

I would say that microsoft server is still a big player in servers. I know eve online, who has the most powerful game server in the world, uses windows server 2008.

Yeah MSSQL has still got it's head above MySQL. But MySQL is ever growing.

Thread Starter 
Don't have time to type up an essay, but I used to run some of the most popular CoD servers in North America, while working with the developers to develop administration tools.

All you need to know is that the blockbuster games that the majority of gamers only bother with (myself included) do NOT write linux sever clients, with steam being the only exception. Even if they did, it would be stupid to host them on a VPS because the nodes are shared and latencies are bad. My new VPS has 512MB RAM and people apparently host 2-3 CS:S servers on such a system but I find that crazy...In game ping must be all over the place.

very true... by now I think you guys know how i feel about microsoft, but I will give a big thumbs up to sql server of all things, as long as you have the hardware and knowledge to properly support it [extremely non-trivial]. One of these days i'm going to print out the entire sql 2008 books online and read it. $$

Regarding mysql, have you ever tried postgres? So far I like it a lot better than mysql. I haven't done anything too serious with it yet, but I don't anticipate any problems. (apart from the lack of utf16 support..... confused.gif ) We have do have a light application on top of it in production, and so far so good. A lot of real applications use it, e.g. skype, so i'm looking forwad to digging into it and comparing it to mysql which just didn't click with me.

I haven't done much with postgre, took a poke at it once but that was about it. I like my mysql, i feel at home *looks out windows and closes blinds quickly*

MySQL>All

Postgre is still pretty straight forward but I can't STAND Oracle's DB structure and that's what we use at work rolleyes.gif

For reference, just bought a 2nd VPS with:

512MB RAM
500GB Bandwidth
10GB HDD
Ubuntu 11.04 (x86)

I bought the VPS from 123systems and it was $20/year (HERE) but that is still extremely cheap and I should have spent more money in the beginning for more RAM. Now I can run a MySQL server and all the goodies that go along with that.

Just to update people thinking on getting "FastVPS.co".... it uses openvz/virtuozzo, so no swap files frown.gif
proof: http://serverfault.com/questions/107764/centos-adding-swap-file-failed

Man this VPS is FAST though!
35MB/s (not a typo) Download speed according to speedtest.net via wget
98% [=====================================> ] 518,274,140 34.7M/s eta 40s
also, 80MB/s HDD Writes and 700MB/s HDD Reads

I just created a VPS w/ rtorrent + vsftpd + Dropbox + no-ip.com. Just drop a .torrent file in dropbox on my PC, VPS downloads the files and puts in the FTP folder, ready for downloading smile.gif
No high electric bill for me, no slow local internet... im in heaven! First thing to download, Ubuntu 12.04 desktop 64bit wink.gif

I too would like more ram, but the HDD space is also important.. rtorrent can eat up ram frown.gif

How do you do speedtest via wget?
Are you literally just wget'ing speedtest.net or is there actually specific URL to use for the CLI speed testing?

[edit]

Think I found it:
Code:
wget --output-document=/dev/null http://speedtest.wdc01.softlayer.com/downloads/test500.zip
