It's somewhat better, but you'd need to learn how to get around (compiling from sources, setting up network, etc.), and if you have no previous experience, it's IMO not really worth it for mining software.

Linux will run stable a few months without any problem, try that with Windows.

If you're looking to mine altcoins, have a look at SMOS linux https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=229060.0

Aside from an occasional update, I have no trouble holding Windows up for weeks. Would be months, but ever since I've disabled the GPU timeout for CUDA testing purposes I'm occasionally hanging my PC to death.

My preferred config is Windows for mining/everyday use and Linux VM for wallets / special purposes.

I've got XP machines at work that are used 24/7 by three different people a day (3 shifts), and they all have uptimes of over a year.  Yes, XP.  On crappy old Dell Optiplex Core2Duo machines with 2GB RAM.  Last one that needed rebooting was because the HDD died after 5 years.
