Epicor 9 Server on Linux?

Due to a number of Vantage crashes that seem to coincide with a virus outbreak on our network, and how it seems that despite the heavy hardware horsepower we have given our Vantage server, it still suffers from performance issues, we are entertaining the idea of moving our server platform to Linux for our Epicor 9 migration.
Anyone running Vantage or E9 on a Linux platform? How does it fair?
Any Pros/Cons?
Any recommended Linux OS's to use?
64 bit compatible?
Any feedback at all?
