    Apart from supported applications like, ms sql, mvc and many more, the main advantage of a Windows reseller account is the ability to create multiple windows shared account to resell and earn.

    And only disadvantage can be the lack of root RDP access unlike VPS

      Reseller hosting is a type of web hosting service where owner of the account has the permissions to create customers under his account to sell certain amount of disk space & bandwidth to his customers without renting a Dedicated / VPS server. This applies to both both Windows & Linux hosting platform.

      Advantages of windows reseller account would be for those who has customer base of websites using language supported only by windows [Asp / Silverlight / MVC]. Additional Licensing costs for windows comes into consideration only when opting for VPS/dedicated server. In both Linux & Windows Shared reseller plans, customers are provided access to control panel only. Through which you can manage your website settings.

      The concern here is of your requirement rather than that of advantage, if you have websites running on languages only supported by windows then the choice is clear.
