Are there more Linux servers with PHP sites than Windows Servers?
You can test it wherever you want if you have a server with support of php. Generally php is made to be executed on linux/unix platforms, and is not supported on windows platforms by default, however there are some programs that "simulate" a php server. If you are plannig just write and execute your php scripts just for your personal learning or pleasure you could do it and under windows, but if you are planing to have a hosting server with php support you have no choice than linux, because of stability and performance.
