Choose the OS that is the best stabilty nd the best file system
performance. That would be Solaris and ZFS. But more people know
about Linux so that is what they recommend. But do think about the
file system and how you will be able to continue running and not have
to re-boot or power down if a drive fails. Lots of ways to handle
that. Last I looked (a while back) Windows required a re-boot after
almost any trivial change of settings. It would be good if you could
add additional storage space or even swap out drive without a re-boot.
ZFS is made just for that. Windows is not as nice for remote access.
Again because you need to re-boot and of course the re-boot kills the
