Oups! sorry if it was not clear.
I'm not asking you for any application recommandation nor any OS
recommandation. In fact my question should be ennonced like that : how do
you do when you want to introduce a new OS in your companie ?
Some mails earlier, I've been told to calculate the TCB (Trusted Computing
Base) of the whole system and since that, I concentrate my efforts on it.

Can you say that again, I don't even understand the question.  Are you
asking us to recommend a good open source operating system?  BSD or Linux
would be good depending on your background.  Or are you asking for
application recommendations?  For firewalls see the recent thread thats
going for the last two weeks, for webserver apache is definietly the way
go, for database I'd say mysql or postgresql depending on your needs.  Or
were you asking something else entirely?
