Dyamic loading and Unloading of device drivers in Linux

Why people uses Linux server more than windows? Only reason is secure ?

Another reason for using Linux over Windows is for windows we need to reboot after installing device driver .In the case of server we can not reboot the whole server as server is doing important jobs.

On the Linux device drivers can be added on the fly .No need of reboot .This feature is known as Dynamic loading and unloading. Even if driver unloaded from kernel It will immediately be disabled.
