Linux/UNIX by a wide margin.

Linux/UNIX by a wide margin. Abundant, free tools; everyone else uses it - use of libraries and other software packages; popular with computer people (Linux, ie). The only reason I would work in Windows would be to develop software targeted for more general users, such as students.
