The term Network Operating System doesn't actually mean much any more. Current versions of Windows, Mac, Netware and Linux all use TCP/IP, include file and printer sharing, and support centralised authentication with LDAP and Kerberos.

Windows XP is Windows Server with some pieces of server software removed, a cap of 10 incoming network connections, and an altered graphical interface.

Between Windows and Linux ?

No. As I said they actually have the same network functions. Linux supports some protocols that Windows doesn't, and the same functions are presented in different ways between Windows Server, Windows XP and the various Linux distributions.
