OK Lads, there are good responses. Thank you.

Just clarify something...
I have installed Oracle Database Server on RH 7.3 without any major problems as well. Now I look at Application Server and Development Tools (such as Forms and Reports). I see 2 options for me: Linux (preferable) or Windows.

It will be "test" installation - performance is not an issue. The main call for me is time I spent to get it work.

Is Linux installation is more time consumed than Windows now (before it took more time and involved more complex procedure to get it working under Linux)?

Best regards,
