What is the difference between UNIX hosting and Windows 

Depending on which operating system to go with depends
on your needs.

If you need to support Microsoft products such as ASP, 
MS Access, or VBScript, then Windows hosting would
be better. Furthermore, if you are comfortable with IIS
and do not have the time to understand how UNIX works,
Windows hosting would again be a better choice.

There are some things to remember.
First of all, just because you use Windows at home does
not mean you should use Windows hosting.

The two are completely different, and having a Windows
system at home will not affect your ability to communicate
with a UNIX server.
Secondly, Linux is much more common with web hosts
due to its superior stability and because it is free.
Since it is free, Linux hosting is usually cheaper
than Windows. Just because it's free does not mean
it's not as good - Linux is an excellent product too.
