Or is this acceptable and more importantly stable? Is it better on Linux even if it will be used by all windows clients?
I would like to use this server on the manufacturing side to manage multiple movements of raw products and finished goods through work orders/production orders. We are the labeling manufactures for a larger company that handles all sales, but we do ship direct from the plant so I will also need to manage stock and track products. I have set up most of this on a test server which is running on windows XP and accessing the server from Chrome browser(Version 26.0.1410.64 m) on a Windows 7 client. Things run well with minor glitches and errors here and there--mostly python related errors (ie. missing function calls and missing files). I would like to know if this is stable enough on windows to use as a final production server.
Yes, it is a bad idea. I personally recommend using it on Linux.
Most of the community and developers running OpenERP on Linux servers, it is developed and tested first on Linux. This is same with nearly all of the community modules.
Windows is supported but you may encounter problems, it will work much better on Linux. Lately it is quiet easy to install a Linux distro.
Because the OpenERP 7 client is browser based, the user client should not be an issue. So Windows, Mac, Linux etc should all be viable as the client machine.
I would suggest that Linux would be the preferred Server platform. There are some features that may not be available on a Windows platform. eg the Document Management System (document module) says that .pptx and .docx files are not able to be indexed on Windows platform.
If the 'non-Windows' features are not an issue and you are more comfortable with the Windows platform then that could be the best choice for you and your organisation.
I'd say opt for the operating system you are most comfortable with. It is quite possible that OpenERP works better on Linux (I don't use Windows personally so I can't say), but if you are more experienced on Windows you will probably be better at solving whatever problems you encounter on that platform.
There is so much unsubstantiated information floating around on the Internet. The only thing that really should matter to you is: does this work well enough for me? If it does, good! If it doesn't, what is the cost going to be (in time, money, etc) of learning Linux well enough to support OpenERP on that platform.
Of course, it seems that the majority of OpenERP users are also Linux users (though I could be wrong), which means that you may be able to get more help if you are on a Linux platform (at least as long as your problems are OS related).
As per my 6-7 years of OpenERP experience, I would prefer to work on Linux always.
Error tracking is very bad and sometimes not possible on windows.
I afraid of windows :) haha
But Linux provides fast error tracking so if in case if you stuck with any error then easy to solve.
Even downloading from Launchpad and using OpenERP is the best way to work with OpenERP.
