Well, the Windows Mobile app is probably still going to be updated and developed. I wouldn't think they'd stop working on that, that's completely separate.

As far as the dropping of Windows support, yes, I tend to agree. This is something that's only going to help clients in the longrun. Windows and php have historic problems, unfortunately, from my own experience. Something that works out of the box with any other distro just throws a fit on Windows. And then there's IIS, the nightmare of all nightmares.

Again, this isn't really saying that WHMCS doesn't work on Windows. I've seen it, even on newer releases, but, in the end, it's going to be up to the end user to get their install running.

The fact is not many hosting businesses will be run from a Windows Server as these are specialist servers, so they are just concentrating support on the general populous which is Linux Servers

I wouldn't class Windows as 'specialist' servers. Just a matter of tech preference really.

Take nopCommerce for example. Many businesses run on that, this would require a Windows server. Different techs are experienced in different things (some are more experienced with Linux, others Windows and for some both).

This.

If you're looking to go with ASP or .NET based setups then you want Windows. Otherwise, it's best to go with Linux.

Of course, there's also the 'how can I use it' factor. This is pretty big. Most people will shy away from Linux hosting because it doesn't fit into their Windows specific pattern. They're not used to it, so they're not going to use it. Even with cPanel in, it's too complicated for many.

I have never had a desire to venture into Windows servers. I would prefer to stay with what I am comfortable with and know. I am not surprised either by the move from WHMCS to get away from Windows. It made sense.
