My recomendation is to try to go with a windows install whenever possible because that gives the use of both powershell and perl scripts within your workflows. I've not seen updates yet as to how WFA for Linux is handling .NET and Powershell core so I expect that windows is still the only choice to be able to execute in both languages.

Tibak -

 

Linux support had been 'beta'. Don't know if it's considered GA yet.

 

Biggest difference is with a Windows install all of the Powershell based workflows are supported.

There are many of them - you probably do want to go with a Windows install ...

From the WFA on Linux Install Guide 'Known Limitations' page:

 

WFA installed on Linux

  • Certified content from Data ONTAP operating in 7-Mode is currently not available.
  • Commands that include only PowerShell code are not compatible with Linux.
  • Certified commands for Data ONTAP 7-Mode and VMware are currently not ported to Perl, and are therefore not compatible with Linux.
