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.
Linux OS is open source while Window OS is proprietary due to licensing.
Linux servers are inexpensive compared to Window's.
Windows servers and Linux servers use different control panels. Linux servers uses Cpanel for all Linux-based hosting plans, such as Linux Shared, Reseller, VPS and Linux Dedicated Servers.It also uses WHM (Windows Host Manager) on Linux Reseller, VPS and Dedicated Servers. Windows servers on the other hand run on plesk.
