    Linux: more secure, open source (you can change to suit), cheaper (free)

    Php runs natively on Linux web servers (Apache, Tomcat, et al). You should not need to do much to make your current code run there, except to deal with Windows-specific cruft.

    My company serves up to 5 million users a day, and we don't use ANY Microsoft code for our servers.
