Operating systems: Windows vs. Linux

We are planning to implement SAP modules in our company (one of the leading industries in Pakistan.) We have two options with reference to the selection of operating system for the server. One is Windows and the other is Linux. We currently have equally good arguments in favor of and against both the options. I would appreciate your comments with reference to your experiences.

There are good arguments in favor and against both options. I have customers running on Windows and others using Linux. Both of them seem to be happy with their decision.

I always advice customers to take the operating system and database they feel most comfortable with.
