“Hey guys I asked this question recently and got some good answers. I followed up by ringing a provider who said I could go either windows or linux depending on what i am going to use to script. Basically whatever I choose to I am learning PHP and eventually ASP (Windows).
From reading endless comparisons I am now confused. The hosting provider told me the price is the same regardless. The forums say windows server is expensive and linux is free? I have an XP machine, will have win7 soon. Can someone help me in what i have to do in order to go forward.”
