    Linux hosting is cheaper because Linux is opensource and there are no license costs like in windows.

    This isn't true. Linux has less overhead than Windows Server and runs better for less demanding applications. There are also software that only work in Linux and/or work better in Linux. Linux is very popular in the server environment.

    Linux is better and is cheap (in fact is free). I use it with WHM/CPanel for an easiest administration.

    If you are running asp, you must choose windows hosting.

    if your script using php, it will be better for linux hosting.

    Linux and Windows both have developers that are working to improve security, so the differences between them in terms of security will be slight. If security is a huge issue for you, worry less about whether your server is Linux or Windows and more about what hosting company you are using. Search for a hosting company that has a skilled staff and is reputable for consistent security and go with whatever server they recommend for your needs.
