When Linux (or any of it's other variants) is used as an operating system in any type of hosting it is called as Linux hosting. So, when its used in shared hosting, it is called as Linux shared hosting.
Linux (or many of it's other variants) are the most preferred operating systems than Windows by the webmasters. This is because it lets you use PHP, Python, CGI and Pearl, which are very popular choices for webmasters. It’s also considered to be one of the most stable choices for your hosting and provides more features that can be used free of charge (or at a very low price) as compared to Windows hosting.
