Is Oracle 10g supported on Windows Server 2008 64 bits ?

Is Oracle 10g supported on Windows Server 2008 64 bits ?

We need to setup a new Oracle server , and the provider of the Oracle application says his application, using Oracle 10g, will not work on Windows Server 2008, and that we need to setup our new server with Windows 2003 in order to be compatible. Is this true ?

Would you have a compatibility matrix I could download ? (I don't have an Oracle support account to login in to Oracle).

Thanks

Oracle Database is supported on Windows Vista and Windows Server 2008 with the 10.2.0.4 release. Use the Oracle Database 10g Release 2 (10.2.0.4) for Microsoft Windows Vista and Windows Server 2008 media available in the 10.2.0.4 media pack and the Oracle Technology Network site. Do not install Oracle Database on Windows Vista or Windows Server 2008 using the media for Oracle Database 10g Release 2 (10.2) for Microsoft Windows.


However, just because the Oracle database is supported runs on Windows Server 2008 does not mean that the third party app will. Even if it does, it still doesn't mean that the provider will support it.

So I guess it means that the 3rd party developper has not yet tested their application on Windows Server 2008 with 10.2.0.4.

Installing a 7 year old OS on a brand new server...  :-(

Thanks

See attached screenshots from support.oracle.com, showing 10gR2 is certified on Vista and 2008 (64-bit), including certification notes.
