I am ready to move Slimserver from my test environment to a productive
server. So far I used the windows compiled version of Slimserver. I am
wondering whether I can install PERL and the Perl modules of Slimserver on
A Windows 2003 platform. If so any advantages/disadvantages?

Appreciate all opinions.

Thanks

Matt

I tend to prefer using perl with the scripts on any platform. Mainly it is
because I'm always tweaking things and this makes it the same for all
platforms. I also tend to think the server reacts a bit faster when its the
perl script.

Go for perl if you don't need the nifty SlimServer icon in your taskbar.
When you start using third party plugins you'll often need additional perl
modules which are not available with the compiled version.
