I would personally stay with Linux not only for the cost savings but dealing with Microsoft licensing can be a pain.

You also generally will have less overall issues with a properly setup Linux server compared to a Windows server, at least in my own experience.

It will depends on your requirements, If you have developed site on asp.net you should use windows to host bcoz as linux will supports php, perl, python etc scripting languages and also it supports MySQL, MariaDB. You have to use the OS's as per your requirements

In simple language we can describe Linux and windows will be as follow:

Windows: GUI interface and easy to use.
Linux: Secure one

It's not that simple. Both can be as secure as the other.

Both have their unique features and also it depends your project or business. As windows supports only .net applications.

The flexibility of multiple distros, the non-existent asking price and the heightened security, Linux is my overall favourite - assuming you’ve got the patience to adapt to a new system.

Both Linux and Windows are reliable operating systems that have some different capabilities and some different advantages.

1. If you are looking to create complex concept frameworks, and use Windows Script languages for your website, then Windows hosting is best for you.

2. However, if you are planning to create an E-commerce website with shopping cart or blog sites, then Linux hosting will be the best option for you.

This is my personal view, but I like Linux more than Windows. Windows seems to have issues in general.

Linux is user-friendly, many people use WordPress and popular CMS platforms which work best on Linux. Things are easier to fix as well on the server than on Windows.

You can use WordPress, Joomla, etc. on Windows, but you'd get the best performance on Linux.
