I concurr. Your bottleneck is your connection not your OS. If you had an OC3 connection all to yourself (thousands/month cost) then Linux would outperform any flavor of windoze by a significant amount -- if you spend time to tune it just right --, but really only for serving "stuff", not so much for downloading "stuff". Either way you'd need a connection orders of magnitued better than yours before you'd see a significant difference.
