While I also would recommend unix with Oracle, it should be pretty easy to move to Oracle on Windows using the Migration Assistant (search metalink or OTN for Migration Assistant).

The usual reasons for using Windows are cost and supportability concerns with linux.  With the cost of supported linux on par or lower than some Windows versions and many support options available, I don't see the Windows argument holding as much water any more.

Thanks guys, annamalai & Stephen

Our team decided in using Oracle+Unix. Since we're not professional of Oracle, pray for us.
