- Windows Server has allowed us to manage our catalogs in a manner that was not easily allowed on Windows 10 or even Linux easily.
I have used/administered several servers using systems like Ubuntu, Debian, and CentOS. While these systems are great in their own rights, you are typically using a command-line interface or shell in order to administrate the system. This requires a lot of commands to be remembered and is not always the easiest. Windows Server on the other hand has the option for using the Windows UI to be able to administrate the system with a familiar interface. Windows Server is far easier to administrate than the Linux distributions.

If you want a reliable system with a Windows interface, then Windows Server is your best choice. If you want a server system that can run on very minimal hardware, then Linux would be the better choice. However, Windows Server is far superior to Linux in the vast amount of software that can be installed and ran as well as is supported natively.
