    We all know how fast, reliable, secure, slick and gentle it is with resources in a home/office based environment...

    Look, the vast majority of servers run *nix systems. It's the only option worth consideration in my highly arrogant opinion - unless you want to run virtual computers i suppose.

    Go Linux all the way. You may need a little more help in how to administer it, but its going to handle far more load than winblows ever will.

    I'd say for a web server, FreeBSD is a better solution, performance/security wise, then most linux distros straight out of the box.

    I'm a big fan of linux, and most of the scripts that you want to run will probably be more comfortable on linux. Typically you're looking at linux - PHP/MySql, windows - asp etc. I really can't think of much of a reason you'd want to go with windows.

    I read that many people use windows VPS servers instead of linux in the purpose of running xrumer on the server.
