When comparing Windows vs. Linux hosting there are many rumors you may have heard about why one is better than the other. In reality, there are several things that are virtually the same whether you choose Windows hosting or Linux hosting.

Performance. On both platforms the speed and efficiency will be comparable when an experienced administrator manages it.

Stability. While Windows web hosting systems were notoriously unstable in the past, the stability between a Windows server and a Linux server today is negligible.

Ease of use. Most interaction with your web hosting system will be through FTP or a server's control panel. So even if Windows provides a nice GUI interface, you aren't likely to use it anyway.

Most web hosting service providers offer two kinds of  web hosting.
 1. Linux web hosting and
2. Windows web hosting.
In general, Linux hosting refers to shared hosting, the most popular hosting service in the industry. ... Linux hosting is compatible with PHP and MySQL, which supports scripts such as WordPress, Zen Cart, and phpBB.
Linux and Windows are two different types of operating systems. Linux is the most popular operating system for web servers. Since Linux-based hosting is more popular, it has more of the features web designers expect. So unless you have websites which need specific Windows applications, Linux is the preferred choice.
