Hoster Poster made me aware of an interesting KB article that describes the issue of failures when hosting ASP.NET on Windows 2003. Simple reading the title really makes you wonder:
“You may receive an error message, or the computer may stop responding, when you host Web applications that use ASP.NET on a computer that is running Windows Server 2003“
Say what? If I host ASP.NET on Windows Server 2003 I may receive an error or the machine may stop responding altogether? Okay, the article itself explains the conditions under which this may occur. But it doesn't make me happy (as we're doing ASP.NET hosting too).
