Funny story, I work in the webhosting industry and microsoft has been quite agressively trying to gain a foothold, going so far as to pay for dedicated servers for more than a few webhosting providers.
Of course windows is terrible enough with shared hosting I think they have a long road ahead of them, but the matter of fact is the average webhosting customer can't write HTML ; much less tell what OS their server is running.
Fortunately for linux right now IIS is absolutely terrible and has all sorts of ridiculous bugs that are a pain in the ass to deal with, however microsoft is making progress. If they ever reach a stage of not being horrible to deal with, you may see a lot of hosting providers go with windows by default.
