    People prefer oracle in solaris, linux or Unix because there OS are more secure, 64 bit OS, high available

    In the case of Linux is it is almost free. U can also customize linux based on ur requirement

    Unix or Linux would not leave you at the so called "Microsoft's Blue Screen of Death"

    when you get error in windows what do you do most of time? reboot
    in unix or linux at least you can diagnostic what happened plus it´s rare that it happens as often as windows, normally a windows database server has to reboot at least once every 2, 3 months (in win NT) where as unix I have seen one hp-ux server up for 3 years without a single reboot

    Hi

    Unix file system is always better then Nt file system and Unix flavours are very stable.

    And that can be very nagging. Esp the blue screen with hexadecimals. and ofcourse there are tools to log into the os if the system file(in winnt/system32/..) is kaput, it's a pain even for the SA's to restore the problem, they'd prefer to reinstall winnt....That's how handy the NT is.

    Its the same old unix/windows arguement.

    All Oracle interfaces are standardized to Java. So you'll see the same screens in Unix or Windows.

    Unix is Multi Processing while Windows is Multi Threading which meand you could kill Oracle on Unix by killing one of the important processes.

    Managebility of Oracle is lot more in Windows than Unix.

    Configuring good backups on Windows and Oracle is not at all good. In Unix, you'll save tons of money by writing Shell Scripts which give you a lot more control on what you want to do. Even when you buy Backup tools like Veritas etc I would'nt trust backups on NT.

    Unix is VIRUS SAFE. This is one single point that's necessary for me to throw Windows out.

    Speed ? Depends on your application. If something like 10-50 Gig or so, Windows should be ok, beyond that I would'nt trust it.
