    Linux is definitely more secured and provide FAR BETTER stability, than Windows Server.

    In case of crash Windows Server boots into stupid recovery, but linux try to recover himself (fsck etc.)

    Unix systems are very secured as the risk of getting infected by a malware is very little.
    But Windows!!! That's another thing.
    Maybe on desktops, but for web hosting this is not true. There is far more malware designed for Linux based hosting, due to it's popularity, than for Windows servers.

    See ClamAV/clamdb for example.
