Web Hosting Window or Linux?

I've read that you don't have to pick a windows package just because your computers are running windows...
The reason interested in Linux is that you get 1 mysql database with Linux and you don't get one with the windows package with the host i'm looking at (Fasthosts)
Have read that you need this to have a forum....it's such a minefield.....the terms aren't consistent on the different hosting sites and then there doesn't appear to be full information and nowhere to ask the question until you've signed up....still enjoying the process though :)
All help much appreciated....:)

Go with a Linux server and will have access to PHP and MySQL. Windows servers use ASP, which is necessary for certain uses.
