pros:
the gui will look nice

cons:
it's windows
not the most stable/secure operating system
not as much support, since most server guides/help will be apache on a *nix machine.
windows xp is more of a desktop OS, not a server OS.

pro - wat tom said , but if you use Abyss webserver, it will be as great as it being on Linux.

con- Your using evil APACHE. On a Pc, what are you thinking!, perhaps apache is ok on Linux, but windows, its a joke. (sorry, I just really hate apache :/ )

click my sig to find the wonderful world of Abyss, as its as great on pc/linux ^.^

(security, easilbility, controlibility , optionability) ^.-

If u use IIS server or whatever its called, depending on the Xp, it will limit to 5 users to 10. --
