    Many people like windows Vps while some other like Linux Vps. Linux vps is cheap and more reliable as compared to windows but few people like windows more as it supports .net and mysql. But linux is an opensource and windows vps is better if you are dependent on windows soft wares. Many people are doing azure migration for hosting because maybe they are getting more benefits over there.

    Default Windows VPS
    Probably Window VPS would be more beneficial if you plan to use window-based tools on VPS.

    Personally I would prefer Linux VPS than Window because almost website CMS based on PHP and they're running on Apache server, ex: Wordpress, Joomla, Xenforo,...IMO

    If any .net Applications, MS-SQL, Remote Database are being hosted then go for Windows VPS hosting. Windows VPS is more costlier than Linux VPS.

    Linux VPS Advantages
    Comparing the prices of the two operating systems, Linux is the cheaper option, as itís free and open source, while Windows requires an operating system license. Therefore, most Linux server applications are also free.

    Linux offers more flexibility when it comes to control panels. While Plesk can be used for both Windows and Linux VPS, only cPanel is compatible with Linux. This alone makes Linux a popular choice among business and developers.

    Because of open source, Linux is notoriously tough on malware and viruses. Windows, on the other hand, will require you to install a plethora of security software to combat SQL attacks and script kiddies.

    Windows VPS Advantages
    The main advantage of the Windows VPS hosting option is the easy and comfortable interface. For VPS novices, Windows will be helpful, especially if you are familiar with Windows products.

    If your business largely depends on Microsoft software, a Windows VPS would be a match made in hosting heaven. Websites built with the ***.NET framework work require a Windows VPS for optimal performance.

    Lastly, remote desktop access is an advantage Windows has over Linux. You can direct access from anywhere to your VPS server from your interface. This makes server management simpler and easier than Linux, which requires a text-based Secure Shell (SSH) protocol.

    Linux server use lower amount of RAM and system resources than windows. If you doesnt need .net applications i suggest you to use linux.
    Linux can be harder for managing because usually you acess server press ssh which doesnt offer GUI and you must know how to use command line commands, but this is what linux offer without GUI really really low resources uses.
