'Windows would be nice because java is more stable on a windows machine.'
Actually it's more stable on a Sun platform, *nix handles it fine as it's developed for that platform - and a bit unpredictable on windows as the code can go a bit south dependent on browser & version.

Still looking for a dedicated server....im in the very serious stages now.
I found some nice ones for under $100 but am still weary of whether or not they can handle the 1000 concurrent users.
I think the minimal requirements right now are:
At least 1 gig of ram
1000 gb/month of BW
Beyond that not sure.
Anyone else have offers or advice as to what I need.

Would be happy to help you out and get a server up and running for you.
We dont provide windows on our servers, however, it looks like digichat will install and run under linux, which will give it a better overall performance.
The Best deal at 4Hosted i could find is:
RedHat Linux 9.0
Intel Pentium 4 2.4 GHZ - 1024 MB ram
1000 GB Transfer
120 GB Hard Drive
24/7 Monitoring and True Server Management from 4Hosted.
Would be willing to help you setup Digichat as well, its no biggy as its mostly Java.
We can do this for $60 Setup/$100 Month
If interested you can contact me directly at Paul@4hosted.com or any of the sales team Sales@4hosted.com

Will you allow me to try it first and see how it runs.....
If everything works out fine then ill take it.
The only thing is i have heard from more than one source that LINUX is not as good as Windows for this type of program.
