While my existing system is on Linux, if I did it again, I would pick Windows. I've found that maintaining windows be it for patches or upgrades to be less of a hassle (less crossed-fingers) then on Linux. Novell seems to break their patch channel on a regular basis, and if you depend on any third-party products such as vendor-multipath for your storage, patching linux where the kernel updates can break the storage drivers.

We are currently running GW 8 on Netware 6.5 but are wanting to upgrade this summer to 2014.  We are wondering whether you went with Windows or Linux and which flavor/underlying file system.

Thanks!
