    Linux has struggled to get a foothold in the personal PC market. It has less than 1% of market share.

    Hosting customers are sometimes frustrated by Linux; they’ve never used it before, and it’s completely unfamiliar to people who use Windows (and, to some degree, Mac OS X).

    However, there are good reasons why your server probably doesn’t run the same OS as your home computer. Here are a few.

    Should You Choose a Linux or a Windows Web Hosting Package?
    And Is There Such a Thing as a Mac Web Host?

    Should You Choose a Linux or a Windows Web Hosting Package? And Is There Such a Thing as a Mac Web Host?
    by Christopher Heng, thesitewizard.com

    New webmasters who are trying to choose a web host often find that they are confronted with a plethora of web hosts offering a wide variety of web hosting packages. Some web hosts give you a choice of packages using the Linux operating system, others FreeBSD, and still others Windows. I am sometimes asked by newcomers whether the operating system of the package matters, and whether they should choose a Linux package or a Windows one. Some tell me that they are using a Mac, and ask whether there is such a thing as a web host offering Mac packages. This article discusses the issues involved, and tries to clear up the confusion that some people have.

    Let me start by dispelling a common notion among newcomers. Just because you are using Windows or Mac OS X or something else, it does not mean that you need to get a web host that happens to be running the same platform as you are. The system that your web host runs has nothing to do with the system you're running now. They are two different things altogether. Let me break this down into the two aspects that new webmasters worry about, where this issue is concerned.

    It is Neither More Compatible Nor Less Compatible

    Some people are concerned that if they use a system that is different from that of their web host, the two systems will not be "compatible". This is a needless worry. You are not going to run anything from your computer on your web host's system, nor is anything from your web host's system going to run on your own computer. This is true no matter what system you're using. Things that run on your web host have to be specially crafted to run on a website, and they won't be the stuff that you run on your home computer.
    Neither is it Easier to Use the Same System

    Perhaps you're thinking to yourself, "I'm familiar with Windows (or Mac) systems, so it'll be easier to get a Windows (or Mac) web hosting account". Far from it. Did you think that if your web host uses Windows, you'll see a nice "Start" menu button that you can click on with your mouse? There are no start menus or anything like that on your web host's computer, even if it's a Windows machine. Like all webmasters, you'll only be able to access your website using a web editor like Dreamweaver or KompoZer, an FTP program, a Secure Shell (SSH) program or your web browser. In other words, the user interface you're dealing with will be the same for you whichever operating system your web host uses. How easy or hard the user interface is depends on your web editor (etc) which you run on your own computer, and has nothing to do with your web host.

    It used to be that choosing Windows or Linux to host your Web site made a big difference in the kind of functionality or services offered. On Friday, as this informative article on KnockOutHost.com suggests, the choice between Linux and Windows has become somewhat less stark.


    It's not that there aren't differences between the two. Security, programming languages, and more all differ between Linux and Windows. But it's a great coup for Linux to note that, if anything, the functionality available for Linux meets and often exceeds that provided by Windows, making one's choice less about operating systems and more about the Web host's other services:

    It is better to pick a Web host based on its features and services rather than on what operating system...is running on its Web servers, as the difference between the two is very little. However, if your Web site particularly requires a certain language due to the programmers you work with...it would be prudent to check for system compatibility before subscribing to a Web host.


    If you do not require such specific details, you should simply sit back and let the Web host handle these complicated technical details, and focus on your Web site itself. After all, the content is way more important than the programming language or the OS of the Web servers.


    Some will argue with this contention, suggesting that Linux is always better than Windows (or vice versa). It's simply not true--not anymore at least.

    I believe that this is a huge step forward for Linux. It has narrowed the functionality and ease-of-use gap and, if anything, has put some distance between itself and Windows as it steps into the lead.

    This is what we should want for any operating system: less attention on the operating system and more attention on higher-level features and services. It makes Linux and Windows, in this case, foundations for what users really care about. How well the operating system does its job and then gets out of the way, without calling too much attention to itself, should be the next decade of OS competition.

    It's impossible to make a general recommendation because your choice depents on the requirements of your hosting or website project. But Linux has the advantage of alive on 70% of webservers worldwide, so that ability be a accessory advantage.

    Windows is better then Linux. Because Windows is easy to installed and use. Linux is much more complex.

    Linux and Windows both are the different operating system. Linux is a popular operating system. There are hundreds of different Linux-based operating system known as 'distros'. Linux is complicated so simply pick windows.
