It is more about control of your own domain and the ability to build anything you want, with no dependencies on a third-party for web hosting, or the technical aptitude of their staff, or the danger of having to pay $100 per hour for troubleshooting, debugging, etc.
If you host your own web servers, you can start out with Windows and learn Linux if you have time. But ideally, you will want to focus more on advertising and marketing than learning technology. Knowledge of Linux admin is not going to find customers for your business.
However, to begin on a good foot, you should have a good understanding of TCP/IP technology, Domain Name Servers, and how a web server actually works. It is much more than simply creating JSP pages for example.
