it depends on what forum software you want to run...

a forum is unlikely to run using MS access.

Well you said small forum. So what does that mean? Like.. only limited users or what. But if its "small" what ever it be, then, go with windows, because it is alot more user-friendly.

I would suggest going with whatever platform you are most familiar with, and have used the most. This was posted a while ago, which did you decide on, if any?

Your plan offers ms access, so its better to use windows. Windows is more user friendly.
