Well, it all depends on the applications/scripts you wish to use, both the Operating Systems are best for their users, it may have some difficulties to their admins

Linux is best suited for open source technologies whereas Windows is preferred for .NET technologies or Microsoft technologies.

Linux is the way to go. With the explosion in GUI development, we utilize Linux for our servers and Desktops. While there are some uses for windows such as asp.net hosting(poor to begin with), there is a steady decline in its use. Linux all the way!

Linus is the best OS as it costs less than Windows.

Completely depends on your business priority & your developer mindset!
If time is important,go with the one which you are comfortable.
Otherwise with Linux one can go as far as one needs

I would choose Linux as it is more reliable.

On another note, not to mention the wide variety of distros designed and tweaked for certain tasks such as ubuntu for ruby development, fedora for an easy to use home browsing experience and slackware for the ability to pick and choose what you want on your system.

Linux hosting. Because Linux is an open source system and is therefore more cost-effective to operate and maintain than Windows, Linux runs most processes faster than Windows. Linux web hosting is considered to be more secure than windows and it is an open source system and it is more stable and reliable.

If done properly Windows can be just as stable and reliable as Linux. For example, Windows takes more resources than Linux so we offset that with more powerful servers (96GB ram on Linux vs 196GB ram on Windows servers).

Do you offer Windows yourself? What is your setup?

I usually recommend Linux. However if you want to use Windows Applications like Kentico CMS or Umbraco, you should go for Windows.

Now with Microsoft "open sourcing" .NET I wonder whether that will change the choice in a year or two's time?

The choice you have when purchasing a 1&1 shared hosting package is whether to opt for Linux or Windows technology. Both formats will work on any PC and are capable of powering impressive websites.

The operating system that you use on your computer should not govern your choice, all 1&1 packages come with FTP access and a range of web page publishing options so, if your computer runs on Microsoft ® Windows ® for instance, it doesn’t mean you have to opt for Microsoft web hosting… Linux hosting works just as well as Windows hosting.

Consider the tools and scripting language you plan to use – if you use PHP, MySQL or Perl together with a variety of software programs, Linux is the one for you. If the applications you plan to use are Windows-Specific, then Windows hosting is likely to be the right choice

Website hosting is more accessible than ever before in the history of the internet. There's no need to be a programming genius or a code expert. As a matter of fact, you don't need to know any of that. With the customer support capabilities and instant information access, anyone can get a website started.

There are lots of differences between Linux and Windows. It's like the differences between truck and car.

Linux - Runs using OpenSource, Means more stable and secure

Windows - Runs on the propitiatory source code.

Linux - FREE, don't need to pay for it.

Windows - You need to pay the license FEE

Linux - World’s most popular OS, Used by 80% of the servers

Windows - Least popular in Web Hosting Industry

Linux - Generally Good for Opensource platforms like WordPress, Joomla, PHP, MySql

Windows - Generally good for MSSQL, ASP. NET

Linux - Get lots of FREE & Quality software like, MySql, MongoDB, Ngnix, Apache, Email Servers, the list is truly endless

Windows - You need to pay for Everything

Linux - Both are stable equally

Windows - Both are stable equally

Linux - Cost, Cheap / Low Cost

Windows - Expensive

Linux - Good for system Admins, You can enjoy with shell script, Easy to manage

Windows - Good for Admins who are comfortable with UI

Linux - Support When Critical, You can google it and find some solution to solve the problem quickly, As more people are using

Windows - You have to wait for Microsoft to help you, but difficult to reach them.
