Comments (19)



Winnnnnnnndows!.

I used Linux in highschool during a summer class. It was alright...

Comment #1



For personal use, windows by far..

Web server, either or... they both work. Just depends on the use, a lot of larger corperations run a lot of .NET or other M$ exclusive applications that require windows...

Comment #2



I'd never use anything other than Apache with cPanel on a dedicated Linux serverunless it was REALLY something special...

Comment #3



I'm using Linux because I need PHP & MySQL support. For home use, though, I've always been using only Windows...

Comment #4



Windows in every way because I'm mainly a .NET Developer.

However, I still use PHP for many of my sites, especially for forums. Due to that fact I still got lots of dedicated Linux Servers running, they're cheaper, too...

Comment #5

Well, ASP.NET is becoming pretty popular these days. Especially in the professional sector...

Comment #6



Windows server prob got a little more popular after Markus Finch said he runs plentyoffish with it..

Comment #7



Linux for sure for servers.

There are still some apps and of course games that Windows is needed for...

Comment #8

I run php and mysql on my window server. that's not an issue...

Comment #9



Linux. No worries about licensing, plenty of readily available open source tools, slightly cheaper to run than windows...

Comment #10

It's not and it is. I'm using shared hosting, and all the hosts I've seen have Asp & Access on Windows and PHP & MySQL on Linux...

Comment #11



Ah, yeah, that's true. PHP is pretty uncommon on shared Windows servers... a lot of them do have mysql though...

Comment #12



I prefer Windows for most of the things like games and surfing the net. I prefer Linux for programming...

Comment #13



CentOS (linux).

IMo it's a very stable and clean cut OS...

Comment #14



Linux for hosting, windows for personal, though if I ever get around to it I may set up a linux box at home to play with..

Comment #15



Linux because I need it for PHP and MySQL. Besides I really wouldn't trust Windows with my web sites. If the server crashed half as often as my computer does then I would be really screwed, because no one would be able to reach my sites. I would love to switch to Mac, but those things are damn expensive...

Comment #16



I've run a Windows based server before (Win2k3) and I didn't have any problems with it. The only reason I moved it to CentOS was because of better software availability. There's a lot of great open source software that's written only for *nix and not Windows...

Comment #17



I use Linux server, Apple for design and development and a Windows too for testing purposes...

Comment #18



I have developed on both. There is more general info available for Linux hosting though on the web etc...
