Oracle platforms

Forum,
I am thinking about learning Oracle, or at least skimming the surface. But i am unsure if i should focus on Oracle on Windows os, or Oracle on Unix because i noticed books which are titled differently. To be totally honest, i haven't purchased a book yet of Oracle material. Just collecting insight and resources.

I guess my question is, what do you mostly see Oracle running on; Windows or Unix?

Thank you.
Arrakis

    The general consensus in my office is always run on UNIX environments.

    The Oracle DBA's here recommend Linux (Redhat) :)

    thanks for the insight....

    Will Oracle take advantage if ran on a beowulf cluster, since majority say linux?
