That's a broad subject, there is a TCO study,
Performance Stats --
Check on google, there have been so many over the years, including one I saw only last week on either or from a very experienced MSCE who voiced his frustration with Windows as opposed to Linux.
If I want to earn lots of money, I work on Sun/Solaris, if I want to stay clear of exhaustion, I work on S/390 and I've seen posts where guys have said they get to sleep at nights after moving from Windows to Linux at work.
