I think it's going to boil down to:  how well do the people who will
operate and maintain Tomcat get along with each environment?  I go
with Linux because throughout a long association with Windows I found
it frequently getting in my way, embodying invalid assumptions, and
generally resistant to being used in the way I want to operate a host.
Others will have the opposite experience.  So, which kind do you have?
