The reliability and stability ofrepparttar different platforms have beenrepparttar 137597 topic of many long arguments. The main reason that Windows is seen as being insecure is that it isrepparttar 137598 most widely used operating system for home PC's. People spend more time looking for flaws inrepparttar 137599 most common system. With Linux beingrepparttar 137600 most common server type, it has a surprising number of successful hack attempts made on it. Inrepparttar 137601 endrepparttar 137602 security of both platforms comes down torepparttar 137603 competency ofrepparttar 137604 system administrators. If you are security minded then you'll do better to make sure thatrepparttar 137605 hosting company is reputable and highly skilled than to worry aboutrepparttar 137606 server they use.

In terms of performance there's not a huge difference betweenrepparttar 137607 two servers. Linux reportedly performs faster because Windows (as usual) attempts to offer an 'all in one' package instead ofrepparttar 137608 extendable Linux implementation. You'll generally not notice a difference but if performance is of utmost importance to you then maybe this will influence your decision.

I've come torepparttar 137609 conclusion that unless you are specifically using features that are unique to one platform or another your time will be much better spent looking for a really good quality host than a really good quality server. Developers are constantly improving both Linux and Windows so they should be fairly close in terms of features, security, and reliability for a long time. It'srepparttar 137610 people implementing them that you should be basing your decision on.
