It works fine on Linux. I tried it with on RH Linux 4.8, 64 bit, with 32 bit support installed. I really have no clue about Windows. A colleague of mine installed Oracle, I believe it was 11.2, on 64b Windows 7 and he was rather satisfied with performance, but the company that we both worked for went broke last week and I cannot ask him any more. The server is no longer accessible to either of us. He installed 64 bit version, as far as I know.
