    Both OS are good for the specific purposes they serve. If you are planning to host a simple custom website and prefer to have an affordable, yet reliable experience - go for Linux

    Otherwise, if you required to run .NET applications and need ASP, go for Windows option as Linux won't support it. All things considered, Linux is a far better-rounded option.

    Idea isn't bad. Though I don't know much about this. However thanks for sharing.

    Linux and Windows are the operating systems which are used on your servers. Linux is an open source os and windows is owned by Microsoft.

    Linux is preferred by many due to it being cheaper and effective. Windows is costlier due to license fees but it supports many applications specifically made for it like ASP.
    Both have their own pros and cons.

    All websites today currently run on either a Windows web server or a Linux-based server. The vast majority of websites run on a Linux-based platform as Linux has a strong reputation for security and web server performance. With standard (static) HTML-based websites, the web hosting platform doesn't make much difference.
