Hi Niall, the link from Roby Sherman doesn't work 
http://www.interealm.com/technotes/roby/pentmark.html
but here is the explanation
http://builder.com.com/5100-6388-5054452.html
 "From perspective of performance, RedHat Linux 7.2 demonstrated an
average performance advantage of 38.4 percent higher RDBMS throughput
than a similarly configured Windows 2000 Server in a variety of
operational scenarios."


About the suggestion of using linux, there was a indirect suggestion
from Oracle, I remember, the decision to move to linux was too an
attitude from Oracle to suppor Linux, I remember some one in Oracle
said up to some date a group of workers will be using linux, and in
that time created on otn.oracle.com a page only for linux. I don't
remember the links, but I think you can find on google.
