Windoz is not officially supported for cs-cart.  Strongly suggest using Linux.  Way too much overhead in most Windoz server environments.

Please choose a linux distro as I previously had a Windows server as well which caused caching problems and such. Furthermore I'd also like to point out that linux is more stable and is more secure. The only downside I could think of is that you do not have a UI as good as windows has, but that shouldn't be a big difference if we take a look at the performance gain you get from using linux.

For developmet we have some windows servers,but for production/live or demo site is highly recommended linux over windows.

You could opt for a control panel or admin helper as tbirnseth (ez-ms) calls them. I have overall decent to excellent experience with a variety of them but currently happy with WHM Cpanel on a CentOS 7 virtual box.

But you are not a real great fan of them if I am not mistaken or least a few contributors on this community forum are not.
