Well, I believe, the long and very polite Johnny's post suggesting OP to 
buy MS service was fundamentally correct. If the person possesses no 
UNIX/Linux knowledge, and not willing dive into learning that, yet has 
great urge to have/run server... well, MS is probably the most right 
place to direct such person to. Whatever one is not willing to pay for 
by one's time and effort, one will pay with money. You and I consider 
this list as last resort when we get stuck with technical problem, but 
some people consider it a first stop. And right answers depend on who is 
asking general advise in which direction to go, so I would recommend to 
OP (but not to UNIX/Linux person...) the same what Johnny had recommended.

And I am the same shocked as you are by someone saying about his Linux 
nightmares. When said on this list that is.
