As far as hash rate is concerned, is there a difference?

Different drivers give different results. So technically Windows will give different results than Linux, but they shouldn't be that big.

Mining software optimization will make a difference tho.

The big difference is Lean and Mean network speed vs. MS Bloat on windows. That being said you get what you pay for. Linux requires a lot of care and feeding for initial setup and work for every alt coin out there require a recompile of code. Windows the executables are available to download no mess no fuss.

Linux is not for everyone. If you are a software engineer linux is a given for mining rigs. For the avearge Joe windows is easier for the masses. performance is a wash that are about the same. Windows has better drivers and over clocking utils. Linux has lower network latency and will run for days/weeks without locking up.

The advantage Linux users have is that they can compile their own miners which will produce slightly better optimized code for their specific system. The difference is marginal though I think.

When I used to mine, I used Linux. It seemed to mine faster, however it depends on your current internet connection etc, so I could of just been lucky when I was using it to mine, It wasn't much of a difference.
But, Linux will most definitely run faster.

For me they mine pretty much the same, however, they do have some differences.

Windows: You have to pay for. Maximum of 4 GPU's if you want it to remain stable. Easier to use (IMO).
Linux: Free, can use more than 4 GPU's and it remains stable. Harder to use (IMO).
