We currently deployed ArcGIS Server (10.0) and Database on EC2 on windows servers. 10.1 provides customers with the option of Linux (ubuntu) servers, which lowers the cost a lot. However, I know nothing about Ubuntu and have no idea how much work will be involved in the maintenance of servers once deployed via Cloud Builder. Should I consider trying to switch to Linux or stay with windows servers?

Any suggestion is appreciated.
