    Re: Which is better?

    It purely depends on your requirement. For example, asp.net scripts only run on Windows Platform. And some .htaccess file oriented project run better on Linux platform.

              Personally I would use Linux as the "default option" because of its widespread use, renowned stability, reliability and level of security and - why not mention - lower costs. However, some things are not available on the Linux platform. If your needs cannot be fully met by a Linux server, but they can be by a Windows server, then that's the time when Windows will definitely be the better choice.

                  Linux is one of the more popular OS, because it is so cheap to install and get up and running.
                  Windows is another popular OS for Web hosting providers because it has a lot of support. Both are common and readily available OS, and there are many good reasons for using both.

                    When looking for a Web hosting provider, one of the first things you often have to consider is what operating system the server will run. and according to me Linux is one of the more popular operating systems on the Web, mostly because it is so cheap to install and get up and running.

                    The first difference that most people notice with Web hosting operating systems is how you access the server. Both Windows and Linux offer FTP access to your files, but only Linux will generally offer telnet or ssh access. (It's possible to set up telnet access on Windows, but very few hosting administrators offer it.) FTP is a way of transferring your files from your hard drive to your Web server. Telnet and SSH are a way to open a window directly on the Web server and manipulate files right there, usually using Unix command line commands.

                          Windows web hosting is better than the Linux web hosting because one of the valuable benefits is that it will work with Microsoft Front Page, a fairly powerful web page creator where almost anyone can create a professional looking web page or an entire site without knowing any HTML.

                            windows web hosting is the best u can run many application on windows hosting.
                            but in linux hosting u can run limited application.
                            windows web hosting is the best.

                                    As for me, I'm using Linux and so far have no problem with it although they are actually right that it usually depends on the requirement. The first time I purchased my hosting I've not idea which to choose and which is better but I just chose linux and it did okay.

                                      2)
                                      For Control Panel: Linux hosting provides cPanel or Plesk Control Panel

                                            As I have installed Linux and used so in my opinion Linux is better in performance but in terms of user friendliness I must say I had problems in starting with Linux

                                                    It can't be said that which one is better. There are both type of peoples who prefers to use Linux and Windows. Those who are familiar with cPanel control panel for them Linux is good and people who are more familiar with Windows should go for Windows Web Hosting plans with Plesk control panel. Since, PHP and MySQL are compatible with both Linux and Windows there is an advantage for web developers using PHP and MySQL. They can build their websites on both Linux as well as on Windows.
