i think theres different types of languages you can use for either. i think php is mainly represented on the linux side, and ASP usually only resides on the windows side. but there can be times when they are represented on both i believe.

plus stability. i think linux servers are a bit more stable.

memo spelled it out - its personal prefrence in alot of cases. The big difference is if you want to do PHP or ASP programming, but some hosts offer both now. I'll agree - I think stability (and security) is better on linux.

1) Most of the internet uses Linux which is considerably cheaper than Windows web hosting. Unless you need ASP, I would recommend Linux.

2) Yes you can do that with your web hosts control panel, I can show you how this works with one of my web host accounts.

Just PM me your AIM/MSN and we can chat.
