you detarmen the best OS you need for what work you have planed to do.
so true it depend totaly what do you want to do with that box.
it is true that most host on linux since they dont have any thing that windows is a must for them and most windows applications you pay for them no forgetting that MS SqL is around $2000 i think this is why most windows server runs a share MS SqL server.
at the end you will sell what your clients asks for.
