Prefer? Linux, but we sell both. Windows because its another revenue stream.

Linux only for me. I've preferred to get good at one rather than get ok with both. There's still a good demand for Windows, but I haven't had much demand from my clients. I recall 1 request for a windows VPS in the last year.
I have been toying with exchange for the last few weeks, mite sprout an arm into that

I often finds that, with windows reselling, you will get more support requests and unless your staff is well knowledgeable in dealing with windows tickets, things would be tough. Just make sure that Window is priced a bit high than Linux
I personally face trouble in getting knowledgeable windows techs compared to Linux techs.
Yeah, people prefer Linux as it is Cheaper in comparison to Windows and is less Complicated than Windows is. However, it also depends on the requirements of the Customer. If your Customers require ASP and ASP.NET then they will surely have to choose Windows hosting platform and hence it is suggested to Resell Windows also.
I perfer linux all the way, but windows is something I might branch out into in the future. I find linux better and easier to work with (in my oopinion).
That is my take on it as well. We hardly every get requests for windows applications, so we really have no need for it. We might not be big, but we are not small either and if the chance comes up that we really need it, we will look into it more just not right now.
Please your clients & thank them from time to time.......they are just like groupies that keep the band going strong.
Some people prefer Linux, while others prefer Windows. By offering both of them, you are providing people the option to choose whatever their preference is, since after all, my or your preference, may not be the same as the customers.
