    These two are different OS. Linux is more secure and Windows control panel is easy to use. But there is no very stark difference. It depends on the features and services provided by the web host which really make difference.

    Linux and Windows are simply two different operating systems. One is not more secure than the other, but Linux is more popular, essentially because it doesn't cost as much as Windows (licensing aspect).

    Windows is much more expensive than Linux server . Many administrators claim that Linux has more vulnerabilities than Windows and biggest differences between Linux and Windows server is that Linux allows all users to have full access to the code and they can make any alterations they want.

    Linux and Windows are two different types of operating systems. Linux is more secure and more efficient than Windows. Linux also has more of the features web designers expect, so unless you have websites which need specific Windows applications, Linux is the preferred choice.

    Windows applications which require a Windows server:
    ASP.NET
    MSSQL
    MS Access
    Visual Basic development
    Remote Desktop (dedicated servers only)

    One other difference is that Linux files are case-sensitive and Windows files are not.
    Example:
    On a Linux server, home.html and Home.html are different names.
    On a Windows server, home.html, Home.html, and HOME.HTML are the same name.

    Both UNIX and Microsoft server are operating systems. The Windows server and UNIX are for the most part used as enterprise application servers that are essential for different purposes including, but not constrained to email, web and even database hosting. The Windows server was made by Microsoft subsequently picking up the head role in their software solutions.

    Linux is a open source platform so if you opt for server with Linux OS, you could save on license fees whereas if you opt for server with Windows OS, you will needs to pay for the software licenses.

    The way to access the server is one of the main differences between the two types of services. Both allow access via FTP, a protocol for transferring files, but only offers Linux hosting access, a system that allows for remote access to a server
