As Toke said, this is indeed debatable.

I personally believe that Linux is better at almost everything, but if
you're running a recent 64-bit Windows Server OS, you may not actually
see a lot of difference.  Microsoft has VERY talented people working for
them, and even though I won't use it for most server applications,
Windows is a very capable platform.

If you ignore personal bias and proceed with the idea that Linux and
Windows are approximately equal in terms of real-world performance, then
one factor that might be critical is price.  Linux can be installed for
zero cost, a standalone bare metal Windows Server license is several
hundred dollars, sometimes more.
