I know that, but the program for running the server is for windows, right? How can running it in Linux (through whatever means) increase reliability or whatever makes it better?

I think the actual server software is Linux native (you don't have to run the actual game... just the server)

Here is a link on how to set up the BF2 server:

There is no better linux than the other. Its just which one you are more comfortable with. Alot of people like ubuntu these days. If thats what you like, then use it.

If u are a gentoo or a suse then use those. None give better performance than the other.

And for those that dont know, linux servers require less ram than a windows server does.

So if it is a small server, then linux is the way to go, but if its a large server, it really doesnt make a diff.

That's a bit untrue... Depending on what the company/community pre-loads on their distro, one can yield better performance over another.

But you can decide which components to install and not install of that 'pre loaded' distro.

Sometimes. On Ubuntu, for example, you get what's loaded. You can uninstall it later, though.

Ubuntu Server... not preloaded with much, and you can choose some of the extra server components as install, there just install what you want later.

As with any server focused distro im sure.

Just put the comp under a DMZ.
All ports will be open for the server computer.
