    Windows can offer you remote desktop access. And Linux VPS offers you a reliability that is much greater than Windows VPS.
    So i want to go with linux.

    It really depends on your needs. If you need to run MsSQL, or another Microsoft product, then you're definitely going to need a windows machine.

    Linux VPSs are usually cheaper, and with open source software can do just about anything a windows VPS can do, so often Linux is the more cost effective solution.

    Choosing the Server Operating system depends upon the applications used to built your website. If you have a website built in asp, asp.net or MS-SQL or you are willing to use any Microsoft application like ColdFusion or any other, you will have to opt for a Windows server. If you have a website built in PHP or HTML, than you can opt for a Linux server.

    I will prefer windows,Windows has two main lines. The older flavors are referred to as "Win9x" and consist of Windows 95, 98, 98SE and Me. The newer flavors are referred to as "NT class" and consist of Windows NT3, NT4, 2000, XP and Vista.the flavors of Linux are referred to as distributions.

    It really is determined by your needs. If you need to run MsSQL, or another Passion items, then you're definitely going to need a microsoft windows system.

    That is the best answer I guess.

    Post Re:

    As per my experience, Windows would be the best one. The reason is support. You can easily get good support for windows as well you do not need high technical knowlwdge for using Windows. While in case of Linux you need high qualification for use this. If you are technical then you may sure approach for Linux.

    Linux is more cost-effective, and also a bit more versatile, generally. I'd only choose Windows if you need it for some particular purpose.

    TBH, the selection will depend on the requirements that you have. In case you require ASP, ASP.NET or MSSQL database you need to opt for a Windows platform, the reason being ASP, ASP.NET or MSSQL database are not supported on Linux platform. In case you require just PHP or MYSQL both Linux as well as Windows will be fine to opt for but the recommended platform will be Linux.

    Choosing the operating system for your VPS hosting will impact how you manage your VPS, workflow and costs involved. Each of the operating systems have their own pros and cons which depend on how you approach VPS. When looking for a VPS hosting provider, choose between Windows and Linux VPS hosting wisely. If your applications run on PERL, Python or Ruby, then Linux should be preferred choice.

    However, if your developers work on ASP.net or PHP, then Windows is the way to go. VPS is suited for users who require independence and control over the server. Between Windows and Linux, it all comes down to the preference since both are powerful platforms, and it depends on individual needs, preferred software environment and budget.
