dump a Zope app out of a server running on a Linux box and load it
into one running on NT, and it will all work. I've done it.
There are two ways of using Zope: you can have it hanging off Apache,
with Apache vectoring certain URLs to Zope (via FastCGI or PCGI), or
you can use ZServer, which is based on Medusa, a Python
protocol-independent server architecture. I've only ever used Zserver
and it "just worked".
The primary way to interact with Zope is through a Web-based
management interface; you can also access some types of objects
(specifically DTMLDocuments and DTMLMethods, maybe more) via FTP;
emacs' transparent FTP access makes this a snap. They are working on
Zope Studio, which will use Mozilla as a platform for a truly
interactive Zope shell.
If you don't like Python, you won't like Zope, because it is *all*
Python. (There is now a Perl plugin too, and of course the Python
people got all pissy about it.)
Zope is cool. :-)
