I'm about to choose a hosting plan through godaddy.com and I'm curious about PHP vs. ASP and being able to have a weblog on my site. Also, if I choose the deluxe plan, I get my choice of Linux or Windows server OS. Which is better to use? This is not intended to begin a flame war between Linux lovers and Windows lovers, but a serious question. Another question: what is CGI used for most often?

Thanks for the input and clarification.
