If you are unfamiliar with configuring and managing a dedicated server, Windows will be easiest, out-of-the-box. If you are wanting to choose CentOS, however, it would be advisable to use a control panel, such as WHM, to get acquainted with Linux server management.

This all depends what you want the OS to do. It also depends on how well you know each os. If you could give us a little more details about what you want to do? Then we might be able to tell you witch is the best OS to use.

The debate has long been driven into the ground and we’re almost to the point where further discourse can add nothing of value. We aren’t here to tell you which one is better; rather, we’re here to help you decide which one is better for you.

I have not heard of anyone sound to host anything on Windows. You use that for a GUI but if you want just to host a website, the best way is to use a VPS+cPanel. Depending on the number of your websites, you can upgrade to a dedicated server.

Mind that cPanel is only on centOS.

Windows is more easy to manage as it is more user friendly. On the other hand Linux offers more security and a good firewall for your desktop.

I would cast my Vote for Linux based on my personal experience.

Linux less user friendly but is free and more reliable.

Windows is definitely easier for a newbie in that area BUT you will soon discover that you are better off with Linux. If you can I would rather you start with a managed Linux server so that you get familiar with the help of the Host provider it wont be too long before you can do everything on your own. You will need a server with cPanel or Plesk. If you can get it pre-packed together into one fee then it MIGHT be cheaper for you.

Not really, nopCommerce for example requires a Windows environment.

There are several Windows control panels (WebsitePanel and Plesk/Odin to name a couple).

It really depends on what you're trying to achieve. For most user cases, Linux would be recommended, cheaper and compatible with more major platforms available (WordPress etc).

As far as I saw from the other topics posted by him, he wants to start a web-hosting company in an Indian DC and maybe it is interested in virtualization. I do not know if Windows is suited for such a task, but would a first, I might say that.

As others have said, it really dpends on what you're trying to do here.

For servers, Linux, hands down, all the way. Add cPanel and a server manager if you don't know what you're doing.

For home, absolutely Windows, all the way.

Since we are talking servers in this thread am wondering why anyone would need one (even if its a windows server) at home!

The question said nothing about servers at all, so you're making an assumption there.
