RAC on Linux is far more commonly used than RAC on're likely to 
be less well-supported if you use Windows.

Subject: RAC on Windows or Linux

We are planning to move our production from Windows 32bit (2003) Oracle9i 
( and Oracle Fail Safe to RAC. One major decision we need to make is do 
we stay on Windows environment or move to Linux. Our plan is also to migrate to 
One company we consult with recommended that we move to Linux as the support 
and user base of Windows RAC is very small. 
I would like to get some feedback from those who have gone through a similar 
path, (but any feedback from RAC uses will be welcome) as to pros and cons of 
either. (WIN or LINUX)
