Description

I was poking around in the Windows binary of Tor, and found the message "Tor is running as a server, but you are running %s; this probably won't work. See https://wiki.torproject.org/TheOnionRouter/TorFAQ#ServerOS for details."

This link doesn't work (anymore) and I have not yet found a similar page that could replace this weblink.

Might be the replacement, but also tells you "You can run a Tor relay on pretty much any operating system"...

Somebody ("somebody") should migrate that over to the official faq, and then we can link to it there.

mttp applied that for me, and is editing the wiki, so I'm merging the patch to 0.2.4 and master.
