        You dont need to restart a linux box everytime updates/security patches are installed. You will do this several times a month with a windows box.

        Go with Linux (CentOS imo)

            Yeah you will need 1 GB Burstable and you also need atleast 256 MB guaranteed RAM.

                    if you using cpanel go with at least 384 megs of ram. Also if going with a vps and the host does a offsite backup for you remember the backup first has to be created on the vps before it is moved off to the backup server so make sure you have enough disk space to accomplish this.

                      cPanel/WHM is the best for Linux Hosting IMO and almost every hosting company prefer cPanel on their linux plans.

                            You should go for linux, it's free and much more better than Windows.

                              Err what? You need to reboot for kernel updates, and updating the kernel is part of security updates.
