    Windows is the most prominent operating system released under a proprietary software license, whereas Linux is the most prominent operating system released under a free software license.

    Linux and Windows differ in philosophy, cost, ease of use, versatility, and stability, with each seeking to improve in their perceived weak areas. Comparisons of the two tend to reflect the origins, historic user base and distribution model of each. Typically, some major areas of perceived weaknesses regularly cited have included the poor “out-of-box” usability of the Linux desktop for the mass-market and poor system stability for Windows. Both are areas of rapid development in both fields.

    Linux is FREE! That is the most obvious difference between the two.

    Webservers use Linux hands down. I also use Linux for Teamspeak.Some gameservers such as Arma series use Windows hands down.Youll want to check how much the developers support one OS over another. ;-)
