The basic (and the biggest!) difference is that one can set up a Linux server for FREE using Apache.
Aside from limitations imposed by ISP's regarding server setup (most will not allow you to do this if you have a residential connection, for example), it is entirely possible to download Linux (or install from a CD), and have a working server setup (after configuring the system, of course) without paying a single cent for any software - something not possible using the products provided by Mr. Gates' company!
In addition, support for Linux and Apache is available in spades.

If you don't mind patching your server every other day then a Windows server is your ticket.
Just my 2 centavos....
