CamStudio was implemented only for Windows operating system and it's not supported on UNIX/Linux.

But, there are plenty of other applications, which you can use in order to perform screen recordings and captures under Linux. recordMyDesktop is an open-source application that was designed with such purpose (with the mention that it uses only open formats: theora and vorbis). A similar application is Xvidcap, which will allow you to export your recordings to mpeg format. Furthermore, if you are a GNOME desktop user, you might find Istanbul quite useful.

Nevertheless, these are just a few examples that might fit your needs. A simple search on the Web will return a lot of other options.

I strongly reemmocnd Linux for your business website for a number of reasons:* Linux is more stable then Windows (with the exception of Kernel updates you will never have to reboot your server which means no down time for your business)* Linux is more secure then Windows (taking viruses out of the equation, Linux allows you full control of your server, which ports you want open (most likely just the one for your website), and how you want your firewall to be configured (right down to what IP address are allowed to access the server).* Linux is WAY cheaper to operate (even if you go with a RHEL server, the TCO (total cost of ownership) is way lower on a Linux server because all the applications you need to run, monitor, and update your website are free (opposed to the several hundreds of dollars you will have to spend on a Windows server)).* Linux is easier to maintain and operate then Windows (it is a big misconception that Windows servers are as easy to use as their desktop. If you don't have a good understanding of DOS then you will be lost and you will miss out on the many demographics about your server and website.)In my personal opinion the only thing Windows is good for is running commercial software on a desktop. When it comes to a business server you should always trust the years of experience and development that Unix based servers have (including Linux). Unix was designed from the bottom up to be a server and that is what it does best. Windows was designed to be a desktop and doesn't have the basic infrastructure to be a truly effective as a server.References :
