The only "special" OS-thing about Lucene/Solr is that you should use a
64-bit OS for proper memory mapping.

With that out of the way, the question becomes "What OS should one use
for developing" and that is extremely dependent on taste and context. 

The three obvious choices are Windows, OS X and a Linux variant. I would
argue that OS X and Linux are fairly similar when developing in Java as
file locking and scripting works the same way: If your server is OS X or
Linux, using either OS X or Linux for development makes for easier
testing. Likewise, if your server runs Windows, you might catch some
errors earlier by developing under Windows.
