Well first, you have to know a bit about Windows, just answer them correctly. I wouldn't go in there just talking about *nix or they're gonna turn you down quickly. You could mention that your also familiar with *nix but I wouldn't blatently tell them they need to run it just yet.
If you go in there trying to change their way immediately, they're not going to consider you at all from my standpoint.
Me personally, if I was interviewing someone and they came in just telling me I should do this or that, they would get denied quickly. You can't just walk into a place and start changing the way the conduct business right away, its got to be more of a gradual process, get the job, then introduce them to alternatives.
