Installing oracle database

Hello folks,

I have been working as a PL/SQL and OWB developer for over a year now but I always felt as if I missed some of the general knowledge about administrating a database and a server.

For this purpose I got my old computer running and I want to install it into my local network with oracle XE database 11.2 and APEX.

Now my first question is how do you chose a operating system for oracle database (windows server, unix, linux)? The only place where I installed a oracle XE database is on my personal computer with windows 7.

My goal would be to make a small application in LAN environment and then host it when its done so I can try to administrate the server and the database.

Best regards,
