I recently performed a technical, head-to-head comparison of Oracle 9i release 2 running under out-of-the-box versions of Red Hat Linux 7.2 (kernel
2.4.7-10smp) and Windows 2000 Server Edition, on identical Pentium-based hardware. The goal of these tests was identify the strengths and weaknesses
of each operating system in the areas of database performance, stability, and ease of administration / support.
