everyone has their own preference. personally I use ubuntu, because it is simple and it works. I see people use debian, rhel, freebsd, mac, and windows although tbh I never really understood why people go to such hassle to make it work on windows.

The 'hassle' is quite simple and understandable when you, like me, don't have any knowledge of linux :)

And also, installing on windows is no hassle at all. There is a nice installer in which you only have to click next next next to install OpenERP on windows 8)

I do think that when you have knowledge of linux, it's the better choice for OpenERP because it's its native OS as far as I know. You have more control over the product in that way I believe. But I'm not sure if that's the case :)

it is not about more control so much, but things like choosing the database version, bug fixes in dependencies, upgrading, developing, backup are all nearly automatic in linux. and to be honest learning linux is pretty easy.

Over the weekend I replaced about 50% of our windows desktops with linux ones. Never told the users I was doing it, and they didn't even realise, just thought it was a new version of windows. Slept in this morning, didn't get a single support call, walked in the office and everyone was working and none of them had ever used linux before. Its not as hard as you think.
