I know almost nothing about servers/hosting but I can tell you Linux is generally more reliable, less resource hungry and more secure than Windows.

Also, you may have heard that Linux does not require a restart to install updates. AFAIK this is true unless you want to update the kernel. Here is an extract from linux - Why does Ubuntu require restart to complete updates? - Super User
Quote:

What you read was true. Most administrators will brag about their machine's uptime. It could be days, months or even years.
However, what you need to know is, those machines are not your everyday Desktop Systems. They are specialized Server machines.

First thing about them, they rarely run X11. Most server systems will usually always be only on the Terminals. So, an upgrade on XServer doesn't matter.
Second, as Karthik pointed out, an update to X Server only requires that you restart X, not the whole machine. So your uptime still remains.

Another very important point is, Server systems don't update to the latest Kernel Version as it comes out. On Ubuntu, you are probably using version 3.2 right now. On my Arch System I am using version 3.6, but many of these systems boasting of long uptimes, are still probably somewhere in the 2.xx line, albeit completely secure with backported patches.

All updates on such systems are done only in-place. The updates are first tested on a testing machine, and after thorough testing to make sure nothing breaks, and that a reboot is not required to implement it, they are upgraded by the administrators.

You could do the same on your Ubuntu System too. But then forget about automated updates. Do a bit of testing and try and make your updates in-place. Even Kernels can be hot-swapped. However, it takes a lot of skill and expertise to pull it off successfully everytime.
