    Hello,

    In my personal opinion, and experiences with both systems. I'd prefer Linux as it's more stable when running cPanel as the new cPanel that runs Windows hasn't been out as long which can cause some stability issues.

    Thank you.

    On the Internet there is a tremendous amount of argument over which operating system is the best for web hosting. There are anti-windows haters, there are FreeBSD fanatics and more. But which is the best? The truth is it depends on what you are doing.

    Linux web hosting and Windows web hosting are comparable, as both of them allow you to put a website online with almost no effort at all. Linux web hosting is better than Windows hosting when you are looking for a simple, cheap and reliable web hosting solution. Both of them have a series of benefits and disadvantages and the decision to use any of them should be based on your specific needs as a webmaster and in any case not on the popularity of the operating system itself.

    Both the OS have certain positive and negative sides. Linux is cheaper and trustable whereas windows is much user friendly thus making it very easy for the beginners. If you are using the .net application then windows hosting is the only option you are left with.

    I think honestly that LINUX would be the better option for a beginner as it is easy to get and really safe from the usual risks that Windows cannot deal with.

    No Second option.I would prefer Linux because Linux programs are open source so easily customize or modify the code however they wish to and It has a large variety of software programs, utilities, and games with security options.

    I will go for Linux. Linux is comparatively fast as compared to Windows, but due to flexibility in use windows is more popular as compared to Linux. Try Ubuntu 12.0 you will experience good speed.

    I resell Windows and the reason why is because my servers are secure. I cannot guarantee a Linux server to be secure because I am not a Linux person. and you're a fool if you are going to trust your datacenter to protect you.

    Linux is better than window hosting.
    Virus problem in window is more.
    Linux is better for open source software.
    Speed is good.
    Since More people are using, it is better to go with it.
