Apache is far more optimized for a *nix environment, and is far more
stable. Although new MPMs in Apache 2 should help Windows eliminate
some of the performance deficit they are not yet production-ready in
any major way.

If you're after true stability, Apache 1.3.* on Linux is the way, as
parts of PHP are problematic when used with Apache 2. Depending on
the add-on extensions you wish to use with PHP, you might be able to
use Apache 2 (which is faster than 1.3, but not by a great deal).

HTH.
