Which platform should I choose: Linux or Windows?

The judgment to choose a hosting platform for your website should depend on the applications that will guarantee the functioning of your website. If you are planning to use ASP, VBScript, Windows Media, Microsoft Access, Microsoft SQL Server and don’t have time or tendency to learn a Linux oriented application, then consider a server running Windows 2008 Standard, Web or Datacenter Edition (64 Bit).

Those who wish to use Apache, MySQL, PHP and Perl programming language should opt for a Linux platform.
