    In a server enviroment, UNIX and Linux are quicker anyhow. Also, Apache, MySQL and PHP were originally built with Linux/Unix in mind, and are therefore more secure.

    There are still warnings about using Apache in a production enviroment under Win32, although I believe there will be a stable win32 build of Apache at Version 2.

    You could use something like IIS, but then in a production enviroment you should only use the CGI version of PHP, as once again, the ISAPI DLL is untested.

    On top of this, we all know that getting a secure Linux system is much, much easier than getting a secure NT system. The amount of hack attempts on poorly setup NT servers proves this...

    So I would say Unix/Linux.
