AFAIK, those guys one the high performance computation field use Linux for their job. What about Windows ?

linux is said to have better task sheduler, so if you have to use more than one thread (and cpu), then linux theoretically should be a bit better.

High Performance Computing usually requires an OS specially tuned for High Performance Computing. Both Windows and Linux are general usage OS's and not suitable for HPC. However, unlike Windows, Linux does provide a possibility for complete kernel/OS customization so it can be tuned, more or less, for HPC.
