When you install a new server, your goal is to get a long-lasting, easy-to-manage, stable and secure system. Linux is a great choice for this.
How easy to manage and secure your server will is based on the installation. You can choose to do a simple and quick one or choose a more difficult way. The later will give you a better server.
Linux delivers you great technologies like software RAID and Logical Volume Manager (LVM). The first saves your life (and your server and data) when a disk fails. The later lends a hand when you have to balance file system usage between services, Samba shares, etc. And helps you to move your data quickly and with zero downtime later. Yes, you may want this years later... but why not prepare for it? You'll love your decision.
