    The flavors of Linux are referred to as distributions (often shortened to "distros"). All the Linux distributions released around the same time frame will use the same kernel (the guts of the Operating System). They differ in the add-on software provided, GUI, install process, price, documentation and technical support. Both Linux and Windows come in desktop and server editions.

    I would say before choosing linux or windows we must have a look on advantages and disadvantages of both I agree that Linux-based hosting is definately the most popular. It is usually less expensive than Windows, But, Linux Hosting have some disadvantages. the main disadvantages of Linux based hosting is that they are unable to accommodate some windows applications and the coding conversions. This is considered to be the major disadvantage of linux web hosting. In my opinion windows is much better then linux and people lovve to choose windows over linux read about Why people use Windows VPS Hosting service?

    Both windows and linux have their own share of advantages and disadvantages. But I have to gree to the point that linux based hosting is mainly used by people.

    It depends on your requirements. For example, if you wish to host asp.net site then it only runs on Windows Platform. And some .htaccess file oriented project run better on Linux platform.

    The difference that most people notice with Web hosting operating systems is how you access the server. Both Windows and Linux offer FTP access to your files, but only Linux will generally offer telnet or ssh access. (It's possible to set up telnet access on Windows, but very few hosting administrators offer it.) FTP is a way of transferring your files from your hard drive to your Web server. Telnet and SSH are a way to open a window directly on the Web server and manipulate files right there, usually using Unix command line commands.

    I will prefer you to choose that OS which is best suitable for all your requirements.
