I don't think there's any doubt as to Unix solutions being "more powerful" for Web apps, if for no other reason than Unix will run on bigger/faster boxes. At the high end we're probably talking about things on the order of a Sun Enterprise 10000. At the low end you might be talking about Linux on a single or dual processor Intel box.

In the Unix world, security is pretty much what you make it to be. There aren't that many places in the basic OS's that are vulnerable anymore (and those that are discovered get fixed rather rapidly). Most compromises of Unix systems these days result from poor system administration and/or a lack of  knowledge about how to secure a system.
