cons:

Not very stable – Windows is synonymous with the infamous "Blue screen of death" (BSOD). But Windows XP has changed this to an extend as it was reported as the most stable OS by Microsoft.

Linux Ubuntu

pros:

Excellent community – Most of the Linux distributions (or simply called as a distro), especially Ubuntu has excellent community support. So if you ran into a problem, just seek help from the community.

cons:

May be difficult to decide which Linux flavor. The options are plenty and a ‘non techie’ user may be confused to choose the right distro. But Linux has an excellent community and just ask your questions in the forums or user groups. You can always find a linux distro for almost all of your need.
