Ease of use
HostBreak Web Technologies has over the years poured many resources into both Linux and Windows2003 platforms to make web hosting as easy as possible. Today, there are no real differences in terms of ease of use between these web hosting platforms. If you are an advanced user who prefers to work in shell environment, then Linux is your choice. However, if you are a beginner or using Microsoft technologies/interfaces you will find Windows a much better choice. HostBreak's Control Panel allows friendly management of both systems.
In the past the industry consensus was that Linux is a slightly more reliable platform. However, recent years have shown drastic improvements in Microsoft's web server offering, resulting in an equally robust and reliable platform for your web hosting requirements. This concludes that you can make your decision based on the differences in features rather than on reliability.
There is no real difference in terms of speed between the two web hosting platforms. Performance is generally determined by the specification of hardware powering the web server. HostBreak utilize the best hardware possible in order to ensure optimum performance across the board.
This is where two platforms differ the most. There isn't much that can be achieved in one platform that can't be on the other one. The main difference is how the end is achieved. For example, if you need a database driven web site, you can choose either PHP/MySQL combination under Linux or ASP, ASP.NET or MYSQL combination under Windows 2003 hosting packages. The trend is for solutions to be supported in both platforms. For example, Microsoft FrontPage, one of the most popular web site editors out there, is supported on both Linux and Windows 2008. Please see above for a list of supported features.
