Linux. Ruby on Windows is notoriously slow, and deploying to Linux
you get to take advantage of Capistrano and the other tools and stuff
that goes well with Rails. Connecting to SQL Server from Linux
shouldn’t cause any big issues using FreeTDS and UnixODBC or
equivalent. At least it doesn’t for us.
